What? On earth. I started out with pretty decent expectations of the book and I have to say most of the time, the book did not fail me. I was drawn in by it's concept mostly and I still contend that there was so much potential. It was profound in its own way and it got me thinking quite a bit, but I also felt that it was trying a bit too hard. I enjoyed reading it most of the time, but I felt like the plot took a turn towards the end that had me questioning my fondness of the book. I don't know if the author was undecided about writing a second installment, but the ending was definitely open-ended and hinting. I actually might have rated this higher if I knew there was a second book in store. I would have preferred if they left out Joaquim altogether, but I guess that would have left for very little plot. Oh well.
