I loved the premise of this book but found the book lacking. I really wanted to like it but found the main characters actions completely unreasonable and the ending was horrible. So many unanswered questions... I really wished that I had not wasted a credit. Halfway through the book I put the speed on 2X so I could get it over with and find out the ending :(

I really wanted to like this book but...

I love Ruth Ware but I am so disappointed!I had a hard time understanding the choices made by the characters in this book and it drove me crazy. I like when individuals are put in impossible situations, forcing them to make decisions that (as a reader) you may not agree with but you understand. I found myself continually rolling my eyes and wondering WHO DOES THAT?! It made the book seem ridiculous. Very frustrating!

I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend!
I was able to predict fairly early who was behind everything but the author did throw in a little twist that I wasn't expecting. The ending was just okay... It felt a little rushed and I found myself wanting more, I was left wondering about several of the characters. Overall it was a really enjoyable and quick read.

Main love interest was completely unlikable and abusive! I felt sick as I read how he treated Ember and all she could do was lust after him...it was disgusting. I did like the story and wanted to know how the series ended but stopped in the middle of book 3 because I could no longer take it. Bad language, abusive boyfriend, unlikable characters, explicit sex... I won't read another book by this author.

I was excited to read a well-written political thriller, but this did not meet expectations. Far-fetched plot, cheesy dialogue, inane situations, cartoonish characters made this a disappointing and sometimes laughable read.

Still waiting for SOMETHING to happen!

This book was so extremely disappointing! I kept listening, thinking that I must be close to something exciting happening... it never came. This book went on and on and on and on and on... I cannot believe I wasted my time!
