This book was beautifully written and I would definitely read more books by this author. Unfortunately, I didn't love this book like I was expecting to. I never really felt like I connected with Senna at all, maybe as a result of her being so emotionally detached for most of the book. Not having that attachment, I never did fall in love with the story. It was "ok" overall, even though the writing and complex plot twists were absolutely superb. I really think the only thing stopping me from loving this book was the fact that I didn't really like, or relate to Senna at all.

Aside from Senna, this book had everything that I love in a book. It was very well-written, with a lot of mystery and suspense. Isaac was a great character and I felt much more connected to him throughout the book. The ending and the revelation of the zookeeper's identity was totally unpredictable, which doesn't happen very often. I felt that the ending was fitting and seemed consistent with the glum mood of the book.

This is not your standard romance. If you are looking for a hot, passionate tale, this isn't it. It is emotionally and psychologically deep mystery/suspense with a background love story.

I would recommend giving this book a try, even though it wasn't one that I loved.

“Sometimes I hate him. When he does the dishes, he shakes off each one before setting it in the drying rack. Water flies everywhere. A couple of drops always hit me in the face. I have to leave the room to avoid smashing a plate against his head.”

Thanks, Andreita! This was one of those that all my friends loved and it just didn't do much for me. I'm glad I wasn't the only one. :) xoxo
