I have to say John Cremona is one of the best male characters I have read about in a while. His sheer stubbornness in the face of Suzien’s age obsession won me over. I love his distractive and persevering mentality. Patrizia Murray gives a wonderful showing of overcoming obstacles, both physical and mental. The only slight irritation I have is that Suzien’s age obsession being restated over and over again in almost every internal conversation. I was tired of hearing it after so many times. I got the picture right off the bat.
