it was ok

** spoiler alert ** To be honest, I expected much more from this book. I had read many reviews stating how brilliant this book was. Some parts of the book we're very exciting and encouraged me to keep reading and I really liked how the author would put little inserts of poetry or sayings. The book could of been exciting but I feel as though the author dragged out the exciting parts and made them boring. The main character was never in true danger-even though that is what the summary said. The book could of been better if shortened. Overall, the book was okay, I didn't hate it and I didn't like it-the book was just okay. I wouldn't really recommend reading it. I did though love the ending and how justice was served-I didn't like though how Guo was killed even though he helped the case.
