I really adored this book. It’s the first book I’ve read in the past few weeks that had a good beginning, storyline, good characters and an excellent (and well thought out) ending. I have been reading a little bit slowly during the week recently with college but I flew through this! I really liked the way the story was told through different characters and how it went back and forth, it really helped piece the story together. At the beginning I honestly couldn’t imagine how all the different characters pieced together. It was written so cleverly that it didn’t seem that the characters lives were artificially connected. I know that sounds odd but I find that in some books, when the ending is revealed I find it hard to believe the connections because they’re just that bit too random. This, however, just came together seamlessly. The ending finished everything off, I wasn’t left feeling unsatisfied at the end or feeling like I still had questions. Everything was tied together and it wasn’t rushed at all. There was no drag in the middle either. One of the best things was the characters- all of them easy to connect with and all of them interesting. Definitely consider picking this one up!
