Review from
The most intriguing thing about this book is the “antihero” element in it. McDowell might be the protagonist of the novel, but in no way is he the “hero”. The protagonist is by no means a loveable character. He has his own set of flaws and there is nothing idealistic about him. In fact, the one thing I loved the most about this book is the realistic element that the author brings with him. The character development has been strong and realistic and the author seems to have done his research.
The author has effectively created flawed characters who are hard to love but are nonetheless memorable. The author has built a realistic narrative that is strengthened through the characterisation of the book. As someone who loves realist novels, I certainly found this book wonderful. I love the way the characters have shades of grey, and none of the characters is too idealistic. Read the entire review here…
