I read the first chapter as a Kindle sample download and enjoyed it enough to borrow the paperback from the library. However, I just couldn't get into the book at all; maybe I'm just not in the mood for the subject matter right now or maybe the very small print of the paperback didn't help but I decided to return it as I kept putting off reading it. A shame, as the initial chapter was good and the overall premise of the book interesting. I didn't rate it as I think it was partly my problem that I couldn't enjoy it, although the story seemed a bit slow to pick up as well. Maybe I'll try again another time.
