    This was such an interesting read right from the very beginning I absolutely loved the format of the book, even if it did take a little while to adjust to it Although the way that Michael felt was completely understandable, it really made me wonder whether or not people could really come up with such an immense and intricate plan of revenge It felt a little extreme to me It was most definitely an interesting thing to read about, and I times I felt like I was reading a real life story The en This was such an interesting read right from the very beginning I absolutely loved the format of the book, even if it did take a little while to adjust to it Although the way that Michael felt was completely understandable, it really made me wonder whether or not people could really come up with such an immense and intricate plan of revenge It felt a little extreme to me It was most definitely an interesting thing to rea...

    A very mediocre book one of the worst I have read lately firstly it has no page numbers of anything else to tell you where you are up to just an endless succession of short chapters of mostly one or two pages which one assumes are diary extracts There are also no explanations about author or what the intent was so it is both tedious and hard work to read As it was a gift I persisted and it improved marginally towards the end with some twists and genuine tension in the last few pages How A very mediocre book one of the worst I have read lately firstly it has no page numbers of anything else to tell you where you are up to just an endless succession of short chapters of mostly one or two pages which one assumes are diary extracts There are also no explanations about author or what the intent was so it is both tedious and hard work to read As it was a gift I persi...
