My Opinion: The story starts with so many starting points. It continues for longer than it should and that makes the readers flip pages back to connect the dots accurately.
Half a way to the book, few dots once can connect but you need to have a lot of patience. The story is though fast pacing, drifts off the track for a couple of times and that dilutes the interest of the reader.The climax is good but messy. It leaves the reader with a lot of many questions unanswered. One has to guess the in-betweens of what would have happened to reach the end.
