The story of Anax and her examination started off promising and the tension was palpable. The plot was interesting if not thrilling, but I found myself losing interest during the second hour. During the third hour, when one would think the plot would develop and heighten one's interest, I almost gave up after enduring dreary, if earnest, philosophical ranting delivered in a monotonous drone; I did, in fact, skip over some sections. The stunning ending was what saved me from feeling that I had wasted my time and caused me to reflect that perhaps there was a good reason for the ranting!
Although a bit confusing at times, jumping backward and forward in time did add to this story of a group of students attending the same college at Cambridge University who are seemingly targeted by a serial murderer. And as if this wasn't enough mental whiplash, my certainty as to the identity of the potential killer changed almost by the minute. The ending was a bit weak, but by that time I was ready for a bit of a rest anyway.
