wow, that was pretty bad. I'd prefer not to let this book take much more of my time, so I'll keep the rant brief. The story was difficult to follow. Not because it was complicated, but because events, people, & dialogue would skip around so much. It also drags on forever. There were a couple times near the beginning-middle of the book when I thought maybe it wouldn't turn out to be so bad. But the end clinched it for me. It was awful. Last but not least, the title. As I'm finding with alarming frequency, this title has no relevance to the story. There is much more, but as I said, I'm not devoting any more of my time.
