This box asks me what I think... well. I think I don't understand the 4 and 5 star ratings of this book. I liked the story itself. It seemed to be full, however, of winding stories and retrospection, which provides us with back story. I guess I'll have to think further about the characters and development and writing style. Right now I just can't get over the fact that I skipped about 1/3 of this book until it seemed like the story advanced.
I tried my hand at a review... I'll have to try again another time. Everything I write sounds as boring as I found this book to be.
