My thoughts:

So I was really hoping to like this book because of the rave reviews that I've been seeing.  The synopsis was very interesting and different from what I've read before.  Sadly, I have to give this book a rating of 3 out of 5.  The story was enjoyable enough to keep me interested and the writing style was good that it wasn't choppy to read.  What I found was that the book didn't put me at the edge of my seat.  I wish that the book had more action and suspense.  I like a story that gives you clues about the mysteries that surrounds the story but not giving enough for the readers to predict it.  In this book, I found that the clues were very minimal then once the revelation comes, everything is served to you all at once that it's so overwhelming.  Another factor that I found was that I couldn't relate or connect to the characters.  I feel that the characterization lacked depth.  For example, midway the story, one of the characters stated that the heroine she was a "sharp little thing".  For me, the character didn't act like she was sharp until after the comment was made.  Lastly, I found that there were too many description of anything and everything that the main character was doing and observing, weirdly enough, the book didn't give any vivid imagery.
