I suppose you could say that this book just wasn't my cup of tea. It wasn't bad per se, but nor did I love it. There were a few bright moments where the story was really engaging, but overall I found it simply too long. I wish it had been faster paced, and with less scenes that felt like filler.
Overall... it was ok. It took me a long time to finally get around to reading this book, but I'm glad I read it and saw what all the hype was about.
