I refuse to believe this was written by Wilde, at least Wilde alone. It was so bad I started making faces at the book and calling it names just to easen the frustration such bad writing left me telejy, and felt relieved after finishing this utter waste of my time. Again, I may be wrong. I hear there’s a prequel It seemed to me in the beginning like the two characters had been thrown together just for the purpose of the book, and I generally never approve of things like that, but I thought it was pulled teeleny extremely well.
