This book kept me reading with it’s suspense and pacing, but I felt it got a little slow near the end. Parts felt fresh; other parts not as much. The characters were interesting, the backstory created an interesting dynamic, the dialogue was witty at times, but I can’t help but feel like this book was just shy of the mark.
I had to know what happened, had to keep reading, which is the sign of a good book, right? Except that the ending of this one made me want to throw the book against the wall. Then maybe run it over with the lawnmower. (Oh, Kindle, you just don’t know how many trees you save.) I found the end to be a total let down. But 75% of this book is really good, so 4 stars. (The 90’s references made me nostalgic, which may have skewed by opinion towards the positive.)
