    My first book by Ashok Ferrey: bought solely because I was entranced by the author's reading of an excerpt at the Galle Literary Festival. It started out interesting and at times laugh out loud funny. (view spoiler)[ But the latter half of the book left me feeling despondent. A happily ever after tinged with bitterness. (hide spoiler)]

    I never gave thought to how much Ferrey could be so over-rated as a writer. I could turn a blind eye to recurring tropes used to appease his targeted readership, but when it is chewed out so thoroughly, and has the nerve to blatantly appear yet again, word-to-word in one scene of his recent book "Ceaseless Chatter of Demons", I felt a little duped.
