The Bone Sparrow

I didn't seem to enjoy this book as much. I didn't hate it but I didn't seem to connect emotionally with the characters. I didn't feel sympathy for them and I believe that is down to the way it was written. Also I think that some parts didn't make sense. The way someone could just walk into a refugee detention centre without getting caught and getting into trouble confused me. If they could get in so easily, why didn't the others get out. Some may argue that they have know where to go if they got out but they would now have friends because of Jimmie.

One thing that indicates to me that I do not like or enjoy a book is if it feels like a chore to pick it up and read it. I felt like the story line was a good idea but the way it was written ruined it.
