it was ok
Read from December 11 to 31, 2011

This book was just ok. The plot-line was interesting but, honestly, the only character I liked was Reese/Vincent. Sam/Ben I liked, as well, but, since we did not really get to know him too well, this was a minor interest for me. I actually had a fondness for Reese. That poor kid! Anyone interested in psychology might find Reese and his struggles fascinating. And I strongly disliked Beth. For the main character that we followed in the book, that is not a good thing.
I also felt the book was a tad long. While I get the approach of dwelling on things like Beth was (really in her mindset), it was too much for me many times. . .and, again, led to me not liking Beth. I wanted her to pull herself together and/or get help. I got excited about mid-book and then started checking out again.
Overall, the Reese and Sam relationship was the most intriguing to me and I felt that the story/plot could have been told in a way that allowed me to connect better.
