     Well, I did enjoy this book to an extent. The story line is really good, and it is very well written. The part that I thought was rough was that it was just too long. The author dwelled too much on some parts of the story and it made the story seem to drag on. I felt it would have been an excellent story had the author just made it a little more fast paced. So while I like the story, it was very hard to read and pay attention.
