This book did not keep my attention as much as I had hoped. I spent the first 400 pages or so unsure of whether or not I actually liked the main characters. Nicholas Easter seems like a nice enough guy at first, but when you get a vague idea of what's going on his likability diminishes significantly because you know he's lying to and using everyone around him. But worst of all, you don't really know why until the very end of the book, so you stay lost and confused as to what his motives are almost the whole time. While the book was really interesting, the promised suspense didn't come until the last 80 pages or so. What I found most annoying was that a lot of the ends weren't tied up at the end of the story. You get a vague idea of some of the events that happened and what the purpose was, but no where near as many details as I wanted. This is one of the rare occasions when I can say that the movie is MUCH better than the book.
