What’s the book really about
I think the writer wants the reader to think about how good he really knows his family. Because that is a part of what the book really is about. And of course the writer wants to make the reader enjoy the book.
I liked this book very much. I think the writer makes it exciting to read.
But in the start it was very confusing, who is who and what is what, but suddenly there is a turning point, where all the missing puzzles comes together. After this you almost can’t stop reading. And even if it’s a child’s book, I’ll recommend it for elder people too.
