Three stars because I am kind and merciful on Superbowl Sunday. There are some good aspects to this, but the execution left a lot to be desired, both in terms of plot and characters.

Review to come.

77.0% "Sigh. I think I want to like this more than I actually do. The mystery is painfully obvious, the writing is flat, and the characters interactions don't really ring true." 2 comments

Jocelyn Oh, sorry! Silly me. I know what it is now.

But...any particular reason why you're kind and merciful on Superbowl Sunday? :)

Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) Ha, no real reason. Just excited for the game and fun with family and friends. :)

I'll be excited to read your review

Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) Hopefully it will be up tomorrow, since I am off work and actually have some time to organize my thoughts. On the other hand..... Netflix. It lures me away from books way too often.

I keep telling The Oatmeal that I am too busy to play right now. We need to have International I Do What I Fucking Want Day.

Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) Ah, I frequently fall into an Oatmeal-wormhole when I venture over there. I go a long time without vising, then remember it exists and spend an embarrassing amount of time there.
