This book started well and I found it quite engrossing but it was too long and repetitive and could have done with a good editor.

What a confusing book! Hope that in reality all that is connected with the activities of lawyers, not so confusing. In the book there are good sarcastic, humorous phrases - in the mouth of the protagonist.

A beautifully written tale that addresses moral questions that all individuals face. Compelling more from the perspective of characters than plot twists.

A real time waster. No surprises which I was hoping for after plodding through the book. You needed a "dance card" to keep track of the characters and who was where. In the end I didn't really care!
