My biggest problem with this book is: NOTHING HAPPENS! I don't need an action packed book, but I like to see something happen, or at least interesting descriptions. The first three quarters or so of this book seem to be just introduction to the story.
It took so long that by the time something sort of happened, I just could care any more. After 200 pages of some just living irresponsible and a bit dangerous, I didn't care what happened at all. This book was a disappointment for me.
Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book
