    I'm currently 200 pages into the book and with 70 pages left I am quite confused. The structure is very chopped up and difficult to follow, with lots of characters. I'm currently at what I would describe as the first sad part but it took an awful lot of reading to get to the first slightly gripping part. The amazon reviews are very good for this book, partly why i got it but I would very much appreciate a more intelligent interpretation thanks

    p.s. I'm not an English student I just enjoy reading

    Hi Magical,

    Welcome to the forum. You will tend to find that the structure of some books are deliberately chopped up with lots of characters entering and leaving. Rest assured this is what the author was intending.
