    Three stars isn t really accurate, though I d give this one between a 2.5 3 for the writing it felt cumbersome and overwritten if I were Goldman s editor, red ink would be bleeding through these pages It s a complicated story line and Goldman didn t do the best job of narrating in a way that made it any le...
