I felt the ending was a little abrupt, but filled in the gaps in the answers of what happened. I liked it for how different it was.

This novel had highs and lows in its make-up, when I have trouble working out a rating I break it down, sometimes I work out a mean, other times I just use it as reference. This is what I got:

Emotion: 3

That gives a mean of 3.8 which I think it fair and will happily upgrade for a 4
