  5. I found parts of this book good I thought the beginning set up a good story At times, however, I found the writing particularly confusing I kept rereading sentences, oftentimes moving on still unsure of what the author was trying to convey I also found many of the author s analogies inapt Once I decided not to read it so carefully, I was able to get into the story, only to find the miscommunication between the characters and the resulting consequences to seem quite farfetched and unbelievab I found parts of this book good I thought the beginning...
