Contrary to how this review will probably sound, I did really like this book. It felt like it was about 800 pages though, it was just SO SLOW.
Pettigrew is SUCH a fun character. Smart, proper, sarcastic, realistic. He was so funny and he just sort of sneaked up on you. You are reading along and all of a sudden you realize you've fallen in love. Some of the other characters were like that as well.
Obviously a very character driven novel, and very good characters but I could have done with a little more activity along the way. ”
I also liked it and also thought it moved like a glacier. But it was well written and you couldn't help but hope... and care about most of the characters.
