This book falls straight into the category of a “page turner”. The style of writing took a bit of getting used to: it is very American and written conversationally and colloquially, with some expressions and references I didn’t fully understand.
It’s a long book and the story starts slowly: we start with Nick’s voice, which introduces us to the main protagonists: Nick, his wife Amy and Nick’s twin sister Margo (“Go”) and we are given enough back story to let us know how we have arrived...
