did not like it
bookshelves: young-adult, did-not-finish
Read from May 05 to 20, 2012

Stopped reading this about half-way through (though I did check the back to see if I was right. I was.). The biggest reason why I did not finish this book was the main character. She annoyed the crap out of me. She seemed too stupid to live at many points, including one when she tried to face down a mob and seemed to think it was perfectly safe to travel through London slums at 2 in the morning. Did I mention she can cold-clock a grown man twice her size and knock him out with one punch? It was just too much for me to suspend disbelief. In my opinion, the other characters also had the dimensions of a piece of cardboard.

The main story also dragged and never picked my interest regarding who Jack the Ripper was.
