    I still have no idea why this was on my to read list I think I must have entered a giveaway and put it on there, but didn t win, and forgot about it And the only reason I started reading it was because it was available to read in its entirety from the website.The book was problematic for me, mostly because nothing actually happens while you re reading All the action is told in retrospect, in memory, in thinking back to that moment so many hours ago , which after a few instances can become bo I still have no idea why this was on my to read list I think I ...
