I did not like it - I read it in Italian, and it is possible that the translation bears part of the fault, but I found the prose somewhat abrupt, and the developmnet of the plot stuttering - it all felt very theatrical (excessively so for my taste) with the characters reacting in either excessively subdued or excessively emotional manner. I could not empathise with any of the characters, and if the objective was to convey something deeper via this charicatures, it was lost on me.

So, I am looking forward to your comments hoping they'll change my mind!
