It took me whole day to finish this book. I started in the morning just before lunch and finished after midnight. That is not to say that the book was boring but it was very long. The characters were interesting. However, there were some disappointing parts and the last character to be introduced, I almost couldn’t understand the narrator. But all in all, it is a good book. If Sociology and Economics were taught like English Literature, a book like this could be discussed in relation to those subjects.
