    Had to force myself to finish this.

    Interesting ideas, badly developed story and characters.

    Hmmm. I'm still trying to figure out the plot.

    I think this story was meant to be more than what it is. I had a hard time following the story, and often got confused at where we were at in the story. This is a short one, and the idea is very interesting, but I don't think it was fully developed. I do read approximately 1-5 books a week (on average).

    Thought provoking

    I really liked this book. It was not rehashing the same old story but rather a whole new idea.
