My preference is a novel written in the first person, but once into this story I enjoyed the authors script. The story itself was fascinating. It is difficult to tell at the beginning where the story is going, but I found the characters fun and mysterious so I was able to stick with it. I was surprised at the turn the story took, tying everything together. But it wasnt until the end that it all made sense, or most of it anyway. Told by the man that was once a young boy, flash forwards, I guess you would call them, to the present time made an interesting point of view and perspective. I would recommend this book to others, but it may not be the type of prose for everyone.
