review 1: There was much about this book that I enjoyed - the South African setting, the complex and 'very real' characters. However, I found the plot overly-complex and by the end of the book, I was still left trying to figure out how all the pieces fitted together.

The ending is rather unsatisfying - I won't give away why - but the mix people of who meet in such a variety of situations throughout the book kept me engaged. Because it takes place in current South Africa, it is familiar and revealing of so much of what is not directly said in the daily papers. Three stars only because of the ending, otherwise would be 3.5 or 4. less
