I recognize that she did some clever things in the last section, but I found it an entirely unsatisfying ending...entirely. I guess maybe it just focused on the parts of the book that I didn't care so much about? Other than that it was very engaging--one of those books where I hated when a section ended, but only until I got into the next. That said, I'm a little tired of peripherally linked people, many section novels.

Barbara Aw, I'm sorry you didn't like it more. I agree the ending was weak but I liked it on the whole so much that it overcame that.

Melissa I did like it, though! Quite a bit. :p
