"I’m not sure what to say about this book…in the first half, nothing really happens but main character development to the point that you have no idea what the book would be about, however I found this half very enjoyable to read…and in the send half, the plot unravels with some twists at the end…but then I found myself unsatisfied longing for something different…🤔 …after all it is a good read and some of you will find it enjoyable…however, would I recommend this book in my top 20? Nope!"
"I didn't like this book at all. The plot sounds exciting but everything moves extremely slowly and the characters are constantly making stupid decisions. The sheer number of things every person in the vicinity had to overlook for the ending to work was ridiculous."
"It’s fun, gets a bit dark in an unexpected way, yet remains a very enjoyable read! "
