This was one of the hardest books I've ever rated. I don't know if I really enjoyed it, but I don't think I hated it. It's hard to pinpoint the plot. It kind of reminded me of the movie Magnolia where you have a number of characters doing their own thing who eventually connect later on in the story. I got a bit annoyed with some aspects; like Lux's obsession with Pearl, but enjoyed other aspects; like Lux's explanation of his obsession with Pearl. I seriously don't think my review makes any sense, but I can see how that would relate to the book. I loved the Kalia character and her insights into the past through her past lives. I was rooting for Nicky to just die one is that depressing.

Hands down, best first chapter I've read in a seriously long time.

I think I enjoyed it...I'm just not sure.
