My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I feel like I missed something in this book. Some undefinable element which made people love it so much. I didn’t.

There were parts where I wished for it to end, and it wasn’t until page 167 exactly that it captured my interest. The best thing I can say for this book is that when it captured my interest it managed to keep it. The truth evident in the fiction enriched the story, and the bond between the two main characters had me aching as I tried to imagine going through something like that.

The ending seemed poignant, but over all I felt like there was something lacking. Maybe it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
