I don't know what all the fuss was about this book. It was very boring and held no mystery for me. I thought it a waste of time. Looking at reviews I think many people who gave it 5 stars may have never read a real mystery book . I had figured out the plot very early on and plodded on to the end. I tend to shy away from books like these that are 'wildly acclaimed'. They tend to be dull and boring. Maybe reading 'All The Light We Cannot See' about the same time contributed to my dislike of this book as I found All The Light...' a very interesting read.
