Easy reading, but like another person has mentioned I also found the characters rather unlikeable... which meant that i had to be in the mood to keep reading it. Not a complete waste of time but not game changing in my opinion.

The book certainly had me turning the pages quickly. It was heart wrenching as the author describes the characters and their fragile lives. This was a very difficult read in some ways, but well-worth my time.

The book was so-so, but the ending made it worth reading! The ending is totally not expected!

I've wanted to be an author since I was in second grade and fell in love with "The Three Musketeers", which I read to pieces. It hasn't been a swashbuckling life exactly, but one full of surprises, including recently selling my literary papers to Michigan State University's Libraries.
