Terribly slow paced and not enticing enough to create suspence, overall a very very boring read.

I didn't think it was about suspense.

I found it giving only the impression of slow pace, without actually being slow. But, of course, personal taste is involved in what one considers boring - so may be you're as right as I am:(
