it was ok
Read from July 17 to August 02, 2012

I was very, very bored with this book. The subject matter SOUNDED like something I might be interested in, but in the end the story just fell totally flat for me.

Every now and again I came across a line that I found striking; it was not the author's writing that I objected to, but the story just didn't do it for me. I honestly didn't care even a little bit what happened to any of the characters. I continued to read because I hate starting a book and not finishing it, and it's the rare book I find so truly horrid that I can't make myself keep reading. This was not one of those truly horrid ones, but I just was not at all invested in the story and breathed a sigh of relief when it was over and I could move on.

Again, the author's writing was not the problem, so it's possible she will write another novel that I can enjoy more, but this one only gets 2 stars from me.
