Already I'm bored. I'm only on page 10. This book lacks substance. It's very repetitive, not very well constructed, and full of trash.

I forced myself through the rest of the book. Still a lot of repetition, complete passages repeated almost word-for-word. The plot was very contrived, pathetic, really - love, conflict, resolution, love, conflict, resolution, and then yet again, only in the end there is no complete resolution. I suppose it's to-be-continued, sadly. I don't want to read any more!
