I am still not really sure what to say about this book. The characters were ok, the historical context was a major failure on as far as my opoion counts. I did some reading and too many oieces were missing, portrayed wrongly. That sort of thing tends to annoy me. Besides, the writing was very dense, and the present tense annoyed me at the start. It took some getting used to, all in all I don't think I will read this book again.
