" A few gripes on a potentially really great book. The vocabulary of the narrator and his constant, absolutely constant use of metaphor and simile grates. Also I hate the use of bad language...in this case a small explosion of it that doesn't seem in any way justified by the setting. Although I could kind of relate to encountering someone in another country communicating to me in English, my first language and their second, and hearing it completely peppered with F-words. As if someone once told them....look, all you've got to do to sound like a native when speaking English is use this in place of any word you forget. And there's a lack of closure on the whole cleaning woman fiasco. "
