I went back and forth on this book a LOT. Every chapter or two I would have a wild shift of opinion: great story, but blitheringly pointless narrative gimmick; compelling plot, but ENOUGH with the twists already, just get to the reveal and end the book; great characters, but hard to keep them straight since there are about a kajillion of them and the second-person narrative doesn't make it easier. I'm still not sure if the ending was marvellously crafted or ham-handedly manipulative. There are definitely a lot of things going for this book, but it's not flawless by any means.
