's review

it was ok

I really wanted to like this book, but I just didn't . . . not really. The beginning is so promising, with some really beautiful, stark descriptions and raw emotions. But the book got more disappointing as it went along. The characters from the beginning are not further developed, and new characters (who mainly were less interesting) are brought into the mix. Also, the book uses a flashback style (switching between 2003, 1943, 1947, etc.) which is fine in theory, but, as executed, felt quite choppy.
