When I first picked the book up I was so engaged that I could not put it down. The unique story written in an interesting way starts off strong. As I was reading my mind was churning with ways the story could end. I was expecting a twist and an ending as strong as the book began. Unfortunately that was not the case. I still recommend this book, but about ¾ of the way through, for me, the book slowed down and I began to lose interest. The epilogue feels like an afterthought, but could have been more profound. Worth reading if you are looking for a good story, but not if you are looking for a satisfying end.
