I read this book in one sitting; and that’s before going to bed so you may think this book was impressive. Unfortunately I found it to be an only “okay” book. I am actually not sure what my rating of this book is so I just settled for three stars. I had high expectations for this book- a great thriller, but it was mediocre at best.
I love the “whodunit” kind of stories but at some point, I actually got tired of reading and just wanted to get to the end. The pacing was so slow and weird enough it was too easy to read. I guess I wanted a more complex, edge of my seat story. Most of the chapters I found rather boring and it was not until towards the end that I ended up being intrigued.
One of the only few good things about this book might have been the fact that it wasn’t predictable- well for me anyways. I was unable to guess the final outcome until all the clues were laid out in front of me. It was surprising because it actually never crossed my mind the whole time I was reading; however I was not mind blown. My reaction was more like “Oh…..okay…” I guess part of it had to do the fact that I wanted the book to be over….FAST!
Moreover, I couldn’t find in me to like any of the characters. I found them to be hateful. I know that I wasn’t suppose to sympathize with them, but I didn’t care for them. I wasn’t rooting for anyone and truthfully I didn’t care about what happened to them.
Overall I did like the book, but it just disappointed me a little. There were some things I liked, however I honestly can’t even recall any. I was about to lower my rating to 2 or 2.5 stars, but something inside me keeps telling me this deserves better, so 3 stars it is!
