it was ok
Read from August 29 to September 02, 2012

Found this on the "new" shelf at the library. The premise sounds exciting and full of suspence. Unfortunately, I didn't get any sort of a thrill reading this. This story felt flat to me, with little to draw you in and keep you reading to find out how it all ends. It wasn't until I was 2/3 of the way through that I even found a scene that really grabbed me. I hoped that feeling would continue, ultimately I was disappointed.

No real tension, no characters I loved and wanted to be invested in, no amazing ending to make it all worthwhile. While this author has command of sensible language, it just didn't hold my attention and I only finished it because it's such a short book that it didn't take me long to finish.
