Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Very well written. I had no idea how they were going to the the story up. There were a lot of different layers to this book.
This book in my opinion lacked any conviction or character connection. It's written with zero emotion and the characters are generic. I just could not get over the stiffness and how every sentence referred to the characters name...Not believable dialogue. It was a painful drag to the end and I failed to see any suspense or twist in it. It's all blatantly obvious.
