really liked it
bookshelves: 2020, fiction

This probably more of a 3.5, but I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and round up to a 4.

The premise is interesting, and once the two main characters finally meet the story picks up and becomes much more interesting - however it seemed to take forever to get to that point. And even then there were still a few times where it seemed to drag. But the last 100 pages or so really came together and made the book hard to put down. I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book, but overall I did like the characters, and it ended well.
