I didn't find this book very moving. It should have been, given the circumstances and the subject matter, but I think I never really connected with the characters. There was something lacking in their pro-genesis, I think, that failed them from the start and I don't put it down to the epistolary style either. These were simply not fully realized people and I didn't feel for them. It's too big a barrier for an author to overcome in this sort of a story. Sure in a bang, bang, shoot em up, you can get away without characterization because you've got plot and pace, but this was not that sort of a book. The whole thing didn't work although occasionally I would get side-tracked by the author into one of his lanes of development. On the whole, though, no; give it a miss.
