Did the book description relate to the story? Yes, it did relate and provided an insight into what was coming.
How did you feel about the opening / ending sequences of the book? The opening sequence of this book was a bit slow. It takes awhile for you to get connected with the characters so I definitely preferred the ending which comes as a neat little package and all things explained.
Who was your favourite character and why? John Smith, of course. You want to hate him for not being able to snap out of it but you also feel sorry for him because he can't seem to cope emotionally with what is happening around him.
What were the main relationships explored in this book? Personal growth. This is book that teaches one to rise above his / her circumstances.
Was this book worth reading? You bet. Simon Jenner has introduced characters that are quirky, lovable and bound to give you entertainment for many years to come.
