Littlethumb is charismatic as a ten year old and develops along the same lines as an adult. His would-be nemesis goes from jealous teenager with a mean streak to full on sociopath. He and Littlethumb are opposites; Sawyer is the moral barometer and his journey from opportunist to philanthropist is well delivered.
The structure works well for this type of story and the moving backwards and forwards in time complements the narrative.
The author employs too much repetition at times, as if he needs to press home his point. He doesn't and some trimming back would enhance the narrative.
Throughout the first third of the narrative, the narrator's commentary intrudes and slows the pace. After that, the story flows because there is less commentary.
I found this story highly original. The twists and turns were both surprising and believable.
This is a very intriguing and engaging story, so despite my reservations about over-description and commentary, I found it very readable. Once the story got going, I was turning the pages to find out what would happen next.
