While the story has a lot of captivating qualities and the characters are well defined, I found the narration somewhat stilted and overly dramatic. Too many pauses where there didn't need to be any and a lack of fluctuation in tone to distinguish one mood from another or one character from another. Still the character development of the author came through and I enjoyed the story for the most part.
Terribly boring, I don't understand how people like it. I thought the lace reading idea could be quiet creative but is not exploited at all.Not interesting twists, flat characters; if you need to be capture by a book in order to keep reading it, SKIP THIS ONE
I had hoped to be entertained by this book, but found it to be tedious, and gave up about half-way through. The plot and the characters were thin and uninteresting. Two thumbs down.
