    Average book. No suspense or thriller, no twist in the end. Normal story about 3 peoples life

    First, it took a long time to get into the story because the narration switched between the main story and the back story in a very annyoing way. It would jump back in time just when I wanted to know more about how this particular story continued, not in a cliff-hanger kind of way, because it didn't go back to the same place again. Once I was into the story it was still a little bit hard to connect with some of the characters, I felt the mother was painted way too harsh, she didn't feel like a real person to me. I liked the main character and I could feel sympathy for her grandmother.

    The back story at the start of the novel is rather laborious and breaks up the pace but once that has been put aside the it gathered pace with excellent twists and turns. Characterisation good but construction of early part of the book lets it down.

    It was odd. Especially the part about her grandmother's job as an "actress" which I kept on re-reading because I had a hard time understanding it. Though I think it's pretty good.

    What a depressing book! None of the characters have any redeeming features. It was so real slog to finish and I don't know why I wasted my time on it.

    Absolute total waste of time, pointless ending, kept persevering hoping it would improve and it so didn't. What a waste of time!

    An intelligent exploration of paralysis and what it is to be a victim of circumstance.

    The book will teach you one thing - there are no escape routes.
