My Thoughts

I found this book hard to out down however it’ll was also one of those books that was also hard to get into as well. What I mean by that is that the good points certainly outweigh anything negative about the book.

The characters were very entertaining which made this book great however i got lost with some of the plots and felt that in that case it was hard to follow.

I really liked the premise of the book and loved how it ended just felt that dome items could have been handled better especially in the middle.

In total this was a very positive read and I would pick up this author again. I definitely think that the topic of the story could be seen in a very negative way but was handled well.
