William Cole has done a great job; since He even start by hooking the readers to the book by his opening sentence. He was able to show how the book is organized by showing main ideas and how they are developed. His final assessment was fantastic and well thought out.

Great review! It seems very interesting and has a good introduction. The main character is intriguing and has a unique personality. The flow of the story challenges us readers to focus more on the surroundings of the characters and to reflect on their actions as well. Thanks for sharing this.

Wow, I wasn't expecting such an unlikable main character when I sampled this book. The author does a good job of creating someone you love to hate. I'm interested to see how he evolves throughout the story. Thanks for the review!

Thanks for your review! A book with a main character that has lessons to learn from the past and present sounds interesting.

Wonderful review. I enjoyed reading the review and I am sure I will enjoy reading this book as much. It would be quite interesting to see how each character reacts to tragedies and situations. Looking forward to read this one.

First off i don't think when couples stay apart for long will work out well for them. I like how Hirma's children played a part in his life in different ways, it's like adding seasoning to food. And the story divided into two parts sounds appealing because the reader is able to know and understand the protagonist past life experience and the consequenses that resulted from the mistakes he made. Am inrigued by your review. I will read the book.
