3.5 stars. Wow, this book was unexpectedly good. I looked at the cover and synopsis thinking it would be rather dull, but it turned out to be quite interesting. This is where the saying "don't judge a book by its cover" applies. I really liked the characters and the deep feelings involved with everything; though admittedly, those were the main reasons for me liking the book. There's something about the three main characters that make them so interesting to read about. Especially Zeena. Now, she was a mystery. I couldn't figure out exactly why she does what she does, though I did come up with a few guesses. She's both annoying and pitiful, and I was constantly wavering between either emotions towards her. Ethan was a bit easier to figure out, probably because the book is told through his eyes. He is pitiful too, but unlike Zeena, he is also admirable for working so hard throughout all his life. I liked him more than Zeena. And as for Mattie, I delighted in her carefree spirit, and she is also admirable for being optimistic. There wasn't much need to sympathize with her except at the end. Oh, the end... I really disliked the events at the end, even though unhappiness is implied right from the start. But it's worse than I had suspected because of something (I shall not say due to caution of spoilers). It was honestly heartbreaking, even without the sadness being described in detail. However, I felt it was the right kind of ending for this book because it fits the whole bleakness of mood. So overall, I'd say that I hated yet approved of the ending. Sigh. Also, something else I'd like to address quickly is the frame narrative. I thought it was a bit strange, because it felt as if the whole story was fake (since it was supposedly mostly imagined by the engineer guy). But it seems to have been meant to be portrayed as the true story, so I'll take it. Yes, I would recommend this book, unless you're looking for a happy book or a happy ending. Because it has none of those. But if you're ready for a deep and tragic story, I do urge you to read it.
