A promising read it was, but it is lacking. The first chapters of this book were, in all honesty, good. I enjoyed them. They were quite the captivating chapters, and I found myself reading them non stop. And then I reached the middle. It seemed to me that the author decided that she had better things to do than finish writing this book. So she threw in a few metaphors, shook in a handful of similes, and dumped in overloads of action. Now, this recipe she concocted was not at all carefully crafted, unlike the proportioned ratios in the beginning chapters. They were, hurriedly done, really.
All in all, the book could have been a holder as one of my favorite novels, but instead, it was added to the list of books I struggled to finish without skipping chapters.
