My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was assured by a friend that this was a good book. If I hadn’t been given that assurance, I would have put the book down early on. It had a very slow start. It kind of dragged along for a while, and by the time it picked up, I needed to know how it ended.
I was not surprised by the ending, but I didn’t know how we were going to get there. It kept me guessing in that sense.
It was not one of my favorite books of this year, but I’m glad I got it finished before the movie. I do think it would translate to the big screen well.
