Maybe I should leave more time pass before I figure out if I liked this book or not. Although I never read this novel I felt it was familiar. I found myself getting annoyed with the main character and putting it down but a moment later picking it up again. This is the story of three friends who grew up in a special school. Who they were and how the interacted with each other and their purpose in life, is the story. I found parts of it boring and other parts heart wrenching. I can’t recommend it but, at the same time, it might be worth your while. I am very ambivalent.
