I agree that this a hard read and seems to be really disconnected in the story line and characters..

Hard to read. Too many gaps and lines to read between.

Not until 2/3 through the book did it truly catch my interest.

Central character was pitiable at first but became very unlikable. Was not honest with himself or others
