The problem mainly is that none of the characters were fleshed out giving us no real reason to care about them or what happens in this story. There is absolutely no back story of any kind about any of the characters which in my opinion is much needed in a first book of a series. Also the middle third of the book drags along so slowly with almost nothing of importance given to us that drives the plot. It just plods wordily along.
The concept was there for a solid story, but the writing that took us on this journey just wasn't strong enough to pull it off. I may try another from this series in the hopes that the author learned and improved from this book, but I can't guarantee that.
I was lucky to have gotten this book for free, and I see it's now selling for over $9. If you're a walking dictionary of all things French, by all means this is the book for you, but if you're not, don't waste your time. (My personal opinion only.)
