It is always said that it is a MAJOR copout when a book ends by saying it was all just a dream…. Well, thats pretty much what this entire book is… But its what its supposed to be. It does have a decent storyline to follow that will keep you a bit engaged, but I found the writing to be a little weak. There is only so many times a book can say I guess you could say and have it be okay. This book surpasses that amount. By a lot.
It does have a surprising twist at the end that leaves you wondering what REALLY is going on, but other than that it doesnt have a whole lot going for it. I wouldnt say you should never read it again, but it is for sure a book I wouldnt pick up for fun to read again.
