Read from April 23 to May 04, 2012

I really wanted to like this book, but I never felt truly connected to the story, maybe because the protagonist felt distant. It was hard to feel her emotions with her. Also, there was no real story arc, with a climax and resolution; it just seemed to wander. All of the important events happened off-screen. I didn't see them, so I couldn't react emotionally myself, then I couldn't really get inside the protagonist's head either, and see/feel how she reacted to them. The book was well written and the setting was vividly painted, but the read just felt flat to me.
