I really didn't like this book. The dual plot lines were contrived; the characters felt flat, fake, and forced; and everything was just far too predictable for my taste. Add to that the unremarkable, occasionally wooden, writing, and this was a book I was eager to be done with. So that I could move on to something else, not so that I would know how it ended.

This all surprises me because I went in really expecting to like it. After all the plot sounded remarkably similar to Possession, which I loved.

Not a book I would recommend to anyone, really.
