This was a much anticipated read for our group. It had been a popular choice when we selected our book titles a few months back. For some, it more than lived up to expectations, enjoying the plot twists and turns. While others found it a bit underwhelming.. A bit.. meh?
This was another book that really divided opinions amongst our group, generating lots of discussion. We all found the book to be well written, with characters that made us feel something.. Whether that be love or hate! Those who loved it; liked the plot twists and the suspense. Those who didn’t like it, found it hard to like the main characters.
Rating – 7.5 / 10
