Upon reading a few pages of the book, I was reminded of "A Man Called Ove," about an old man living a solitary life in the neighborhood, neglected by people. Although the plot is compelling and the concept is excellent, this book hasn't been written as well as it could have been. The language and flow of the book are also excellent. In my opinion, the author couldn't effectively convey what he intended through this book to his readers. There were times when the story didn't feel realistic at all, and I often felt like I was reading a completely fictional novel. It would have been better if the author had done more research. In general, I enjoyed the read, and I particularly enjoyed the conversational parts.
