it was ok
bookshelves: first-reads
Read from August 15 to 19, 2012

I received this book as a Firstreads giveaway and this is the first book I am glad to say that I didn't waste money on.

To be completely honest, I have not finished it as I had to abandon it. The first several chapters are written in such a way that you can't follow it and although the format improves around page 48 the story just doesn't reach me.

Others may read it and love it, so I would never say don't read it, but I would say put it on the bottom of the pile or "to read" books. Sorry, this is just my opinion but it is the first book I have ever not finished. Perhaps in a few months I could try it again, but only if there is nothing left to read.
