Okay, so I had a hard time rating this one. I thought a three was appropriate because on the one hand, the story itself was really good. On thee other hand, the way that the author found it necessary to describe less than meaningful situations or objects in five pages. The action is so spread apart by useless description, it is hard to get a handle on the actual story line. All and all it took me FOREVER to get through and I understand why I had to use "sparknotes" in high school to get through it
