Review by: PurpleOsprey on May 21, 2015 :
You know, just because the book touches on important issues, doesn't make the book good.

Nothing much happens in this book,(seriously, you could lose first seven or eight chapters and it wouldn't make any difference), there are some incidents, but mostly it's just people eating, driving, doing sports, doing small talk - and it would take a much better writer to make that an exiting read.

A lot of characters get introduced at once and some of them get referred to both by name and surname, that is really confusing. When sometime by chapter ten some James or other says something - I don't know who that is nor do I care anymore at that point.

There are some educational (almost like encyclopaedia copypaste)passages and no hint of humor or irony - this makes the hole book feel mumsy and patronising.

It gets more palatable towards the end but than again, last two chapters are so different from the rest of the book, it's almost like they're written by different person.

In short, this book suffers from some of the biggest sins - it doesn't tell a story, it doesn't paint a picture, it doesn't evoke emotions (boredom is not an emotion)and feels totally fake for some reason.

Maybe, just maybe, somebody who may not have a great deal of talent, should at least try writing about something they know or have experienced or have felt. Just a suggestion.
