RATING: ♦♦.5 / 5
Incomplete; that’s what I felt this story was. I felt so unsatisfied after reading this because so many things that should have been mentioned & focused on were just left out.
The story started off fine, there were parallel narrations which is something that always captivates my attention & at a certain point after a few chapters, there was a not so major reveal which was definitely surprising. Reading something that caught me off guard, made me have higher expectations as I thought that further down, the book would have major exciting reveals. That’s where I was wrong.
Apart from the first reveal, every other element of surprise felt very dull, it didn’t have the thrill to it as it was meant to be.
I don’t want to go into too much details because like I said, I’m dissatisfied & I don’t want to go into a rant about it & end up offending people who actually liked this book. Now don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t a bad read, it literally felt like things were missing & that alone just confused & annoyed me because I focus a lot on the details.
Simply put, I wasn’t a fan when I was done reading. I was pretty disappointed & I don’t think I’ll be going around recommending this.
