This book was all over the place and would often at times confuse me entirely. I had a hard time keeping up with the different story lines, memories, and attaching myself to the characters.
I got so frustrated after a while that I had to put the book down just to re-digest everything that was going on.
Don’t get me wrong, this is a good story as a whole. Many of the themes were truly heartwarming and heart-wrenching and the plot line was very complex and suspenseful.
I’m sure many readers will love “The First Rule of Swimming” but as for me it just wasn't for me.
