I think the author tried a lot of subjects and failed to developed at full capacity all of them. It's the same with the characters. I'm not sure which one is the main character or the main subject of the book. You would think the mother is the main character, but then it jumps and you think it's the boy and then you think it's the girlfriend. I had problems with the transitions because there are none, between characters, even places or time elapsed transitions are confusing. For me, all of that prevented me to enjoy the book.
You can be entertained for some parts of it. I even shed a few tears at some point. But at the end I felt empty, the book didn't affect me, like it never happened. Sorry, but I don't recommend it.
Strong characters, good writing, a complex plot. The characters evolve, their relationships become more complicated. As in all good stories, the best characters have flaws, the worst have some (slightly) redeeming qualities. This novel is a page-turner with an ending that took me by surprise. It's a good read.
