    1. Now I got issues with Carl Muller's writing. He is a talented writer, witty and hilarious and in this novel we learn much more about Carloboy Von Bloss and his childhood. If they are accurate (according to the writer, they really are) I can understand the anger he has towards his parents, or may be for the entire family, specially towards his mother. But I don't think he wins the sympathy of the reader because of his phrasing, choice of words and writing style.I skippped a bulk in early chapters [...]

    2. after the first 2 books in the trilogy, this one started getting a bit repetitive. esp the teacher student relationships. but carloboy is a great character n the book is not without its charm.
