When all the nominated books were first placed in front of me, this was the book that caught my eye. The cover seemed dark and for me that really appeals. So when I started reading I was really looking forward to it! However, unlike the others books I have read, the first chapter did not captivate me. The story is just too slow for my liking and yes, is does improve, but it's more tedious and like a chore to read rather than an enjoyment. Maybe it's that I had such high expectations and that it was slightly anticlimactic. I don't know.
The description was good and the tension did built. I just want to know more about some of the characters- like Ruth. This is the first negative review I have had to write and it pains me to only give this book 5/10. I am sure that for most other readers this is a great book and really does introduce readers into a slightly darker concept. Sorry :(
