Well, this took forever!
I got pretty pissed off at the main character and his supposedly subject "Adam" so any value brought by the story, interaction or characters themselves was wasted on me.(show spoiler)
I would give this 1 star based on all the above. However, I like to reserve that rating for stories that really piss me off and/or I truly dislike. And I just can't be bothered to care that much about this one. So 2 stars.
