Not bad actually. Very different to Apocalypse cow but really readable.
The main character is quite likeable and is developing in an interesting way.
The use of language and innocence through a young narrator reminds me of The Book Thief or The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

Tha author is a little over descriptive at the start but gets over this and so far the book is flowing well :D
Definitely not laugh at loud but enjoying it so far :D


Is it Lady Of Shalott themed? 'Half Sick of Shadows' reminds me of the poem...

I've recently finished reading 'The alchemist' by Paolo Coelho, and am currently reading Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson and 'We are our brain' by dutch brain surgeon Dick Schwaab. Both are pretty interesting.
