Reading the first 70% of this novel felt like a penance for a terrible crime. It was so dull and reminded me of English class in high school where everyone would say everything in the longest way possible to meet the word requirement. This novel felt twice as long as it needed to be.
The last 30% of the novel…
The novel improved exponentially. It was interesting and suspenseful. Unfortunately it was just too little too late. The last bit of the story did buff away some of my resentment, but I still mourned my time wasted from reading this.
