I still can't decide whether I enjoyed this book. It was ok, and some bits were interesting, but I just wasn't gripped. The main problem was that there were just too any characters it took a while for me to figure who was who and what was what. I was also disappointed by the ending - it was very abrupt and nothing came from it. It sounds mean, but I basically found it quite boring. Not a lot happened and not a lot was revealed. I did feel empathetic towards some of the characters, such as Laurent, Mrs. Ross and Francis. But I felt I was reading it just to finish rather than because I was enjoying it. I give this book 4/10.
