I received a free Kindle copy of this book courtesy of Net Galley and Dellacorte, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would write a review and post it to Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon and my blog. I also posted it to my Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus pages.
I requested this book as I was looking for something a little different to read and it had good reviews. This is the first book by Alan Bradley that I have read.
This is the type of book that either clearly resonates with the reader or does not. I fell into the does not category to the point where I had to stop reading half way through the book. Life is too short to spend time slogging through a book that I do not find enjoyable. The author’s writing style does not click with me, but obviously has with several other people. I found it uneven and unable to hold my attention.
I will not give a recommendation one way or the other on this book. I would suggest reading the first chapter, if possible, prior to purchasing the book to determine if it is for you.
