There is a prissy character; there are class differences; there is what seems to be a compulsive liar who is lovable; and as the book reviews tell you, they are all related somehow, which is part of what kept the interest.

I also remain a bit confused by the title, not sure if it 's meant to have deeper meanings because I ca n't see any real connection with the plo in terms of what peripheral vision actually means.

The assertio that I received this book a wee ago and never finished reading it is pretty much the review.
