The real problem with this book is the editing. In many places, spell check left words even though they made no sense in context. Consistently, throughout the book, there are run-on sentences and comma splices. Frequently, quotation marks are used instead of apostrophes and quotes are not closed - leaving the reader to figure out what was said and what was described. The article "the" is often added inappropriately.
As you can see, I'm a stickler for this type of thing and it often spoils by enjoyment of the book. In this case, I liked the story line so much that, even though I inwardly winced at each error, I still am giving it a 5-star rating. Just beware of these issues.
What should have been multiple sentences—paragraphs, even—were strung together with commas. Correct punctuation allows for smooth reading flow and expression. It matters.
‘Eats shoots and leaves’ may describe the diet of a koala bear, while ‘eats, shoots and leaves’ describes the actions of someone robbing a diner; the only difference is one comma. I was so distracted by having to reread sentences due to poor punctuation that I found it difficult to just enjoy the story.
I definitely was not bored or rolling my eyes through out the book. Could not put it down until I had to get some sleep. The characters were well developed. The storyline riveting. At the end of the book I was notified there is a Part 2. Interesting.
