Interesting premise, however at times the book was so confusing to follow it was hard to stay involved. It took about 150 pages to get into it. There were a lot of details given in the beginning of book, but when you had to remember them later on it was difficult. The middle of the book built a good pace, however the end of the book was unable to recover from the climax and come to a solid conclusion. Great concept, but it was lacking a cohesive unit to bring everything all together.

I liked the premise, and the story, but the events were kind of trippy for me. Too much suspension of disbelief, and I usually don't have a problem with that. I wanted to like it, but the writing style was just too disjointed. I kept putting it aside to read other books
