it was ok

Most of the negative reviewers on this one have got it right. Undeveloped characters, a meandering story that never really grabs the reader (didn't grab me, anyway), and overly simplistic writing. It's too bad, because the premise had a lot of potential. I got to about page 150 and couldn't take anymore.
