Rated of 5

I really didn't like this book. It was overly sentimental and didn't follow the cardinal rule of good writing, show.... don't tell. By laboriously explaining every thought and motivation of each character, it made the book dull and doesn't involve the reader in the process of discovery. The dialogue often felt stilted and very unrealistic. I would have given it one star, but the afterward showed how close the book was to the author's own life and that was the most interesting part of the book.
