Read from July 18, 2012 to April 19, 2014

Had some difficulty with this read. I had to stop and take a break from it... twice. It was agonizingly long in getting to the point. Sometimes a long trip isn't a problem if the sights and short excursions provide sufficient entertainment. There were moments of humor, hence the second star, but not enough character developments were given to side characters, especially those with such great potential.

Unfortunately, most of the tangents went into the main characters' relationship. Something that grew more and more tedious and I became less and less invested.
