I originally gave this book 1 star as I couldn't seem to get through the first few chapters. But after seeing it receive 4 and 5 star reviews I am reconsidering my harsh judgement of this book and I'm going to see it through to the end this time, even if it kills me.
Wish me luck!!
Having another go...
Okay so second time round I'm thinking maybe I was a little harsh! It was definitely worth more than one star. I'm still not seeing the five star quality that some people have given but I will admit it had some good parts. The first few chapters kept jumping between characters without warning and I didn't know if I was coming or going. Eventually I got into the book and it was really quite entertaining and there was definitely a few shockers in there. I wasn't happy with how the story ended but that was just because of what I wanted, nothing to do with how it was written. Anyway I will be reading the next in the series and see how it goes from there. :D
