I did not like this book, I don't think it's appropriate as a Children's book. There are very dark themes, sexual inuendos that hint at incest (between mother/son, brother/sister and brother/brother), jealousy, rage, twisted obsession, guilt The story is hard to read, not just because of the darkness, but also because of time jumps and perspective of the narrator. Not one of my favorites, although I see that lots of people loved it. I'm just not one of them.
I was intrigued by this book and excited to read it.
I know there are a lot of secret deals, dirty politics and corruption, same as in some other industries.
I was interested in reading about the behind the scenes players and dealings, but I found the book to be quite biased. from the writing style, and some of the chosen wording, you can tell the author’s low regard for either oil companies or specific players in the industry.
This was disappointing for me. I was looking for more of an investigative report without the author trying to tell me what my opinion should be.
