I ordered this book directly from Pushkin Press, as I like their cover designs and the quality of the book construction. I was not disappointed on that aspect. Unfortunately though, the book didn’t really live up to my expectations. I found the book clunky to read and a little on the boring side. Nothing much happens. I think I may have to read this one again, as I’ve received other comments, from a like-minded reader, that makes me think I may have missed something. I did envy Robert’s situation at the end of the story though!
