    Quite interesting take on responsibility, family relationships and past mistakes I liked Sutton s style short chapters and immense readibility The main character was a bit complicated, so unlikable, obviously a tad stupid and sexist but then again you wanted everything to work out The ending was very unexpected and threw me off a bit, it just didn t quite fit.
