I didn't get into this book nearly as much as I thought I would. There were just too many perspectives and too much going on for me to really get into it. I don't have the book with me to go into as much detail as I would like to, but let's just say it wasn't all that gripping.

I did enjoy Alice, as a character, but I didn't feel for her as much as I would have liked toward the end of the novel. Plus there seemed to be a lot of information missing. I would have liked to see more of her parents background, told in a more concrete way. Since the plot line went chapter by chapter told by each different perspective, and it went forwards and backwards in time often, it was hard to get a sense of buildup.
