Upon reading the first few paragraphs of the novel, I did not think I would bear reading the entire thing. It features mildly complicated vocabulary and is spoken in an English which I am not too familiar with. Yet, putting this aside I found the story to be quite interesting and even had me wanting to read the next chapter right then at some points. The mystery and suspense of the story for most parts keeps it slow-paced. But, there are scenes of the novel which display fast-paced and even violent action. Again, to my surprise the novel drew me in and kept me all the way through!

I didn't like it.

The story dragged on and on using too many unnessecary words. It was poop.

    Dreary or What??

    I just didnt enoy it whatsoever, for me there were little moments of great suspense and it just seemed to go on for ever. Plus, it took a long time to get into and the way in which Stapleton was never properly killed was a total anti-climax. Disappointing.
