liked it

I started out loving it, but gradually turned against this book. In the end I feel disappointed and annoyed. The good things--dialogue, characters, and humor--were outweighed by the bad. It got increasingly cryptic and convuluted as it went on. I still don't understand certain key things, such as what exactly happened to Lauren at the hands of Will. Can anyone tell me? Too much violence at the end. Not that I am intrinsically against that, but it just never made sense that any of the characters would commit such acts. I was particularly frustrated by long interior monologues in the middle of action scenes.
