I got this story when it was free on Amazon - I note it regardless, but I did not specifically request a reviewing copy, just caught it when it was free.

I completely agree with Furio - the more this story unfolded, the more it reminded me of soap opera with all its over the top conflicts, but which often sucked me in regardless when it was done well for soap opera :). I think in this case good writing almost won me over, untill the very end that is. I thought the quick making up and forgiveness was more than a little silly even for soap opera. Overall a pleasant way to pass an hour or two. Oh, note that the love story is a secondary storyline.

This novel is very well written by someone who not only has ideas to convey but also the technical means to do that. The only relevant flaw is in the flashbacks when the lead reminisces: the POV -for logic's sake- should be his exclusively while there are sentences where the thoughts and motivations of other characters are described. A less relevant flaw is that the POV, in the present time timeline, should only shift from one character to the other to outline a new perspective and not randomly as it does.

Having said that, your attitude toward this novel will change according to how much soap opera drama you are willing to take into stride.
All about this plot is exaggerated, exasperated and convoluted. All the characters suffer from an appalling inability to make a stand for themselves and to lead reasonable lives. Everything is so extreme in this plot to the point that Italian operatic melodrama pales in comparison and South American telenovelas come to mind.
And do not get me started about the unplausible happy ending.

I hated every single page of this book with a passion while acknowledging at the same time its excellent rhythm and narrative power.
