I could sum up this book by saying it was predictable but entertaining. A bit of an oxymoron I suppose but there it is. I enjoyed the book, but was actually looking for something a little more, I don't know, thrilling, perhaps? Possibly a bit more punchy or dramatic.
The story begins really well and offers a bit of intrigue. It kept me reading because it seemed to be heading in a direction that would have been an exciting and bold move on the author's part. When it didn't go there I was disappointed and then it dropped off completely to become a rather boring, predictable shadow of what it could have been. I finished reading it only to see if all my predictions came to pass. They did and I closed the book without that sense of satisfaction you get at the end of a wonderful read.
I can see why some people would enjoy this book, but it just wasn't for me. I need a few surprises to keep me on the edge of my seat.
