The book had a very thin plot that the author tried to supplement with lots of details and a lot of superfluous characters but it still did not make the book any better. Overall, a very mediocre read. Also, I don't know if it was my print or that's the way it was written, but the writing was quite choppy, sometimes leaving sidelines hanging
