review comment
this really was not a review as much as it was a summary of the book
a review should include comments on the believability of the writing, the story, assessment of the characters, comments on the length of the book
the constant gardener was a long book and many people in our book club claimed it was ''tedious'' and difficult to get thru
i enjoyed the subject matter and so i enjoyed the book more than the others, although i thought it would have been an improvement had it been reduced to 450 pages or so

Re: review comment
Hello Indra,

I believe the penultimate paragraph answers some of your questions (and it also states that I agree, the book would have benefited from being somewhat shorter).
