Story: The first time I read this book, it didn’t catch my attention at all. I was reading words, but nothing was sinking in. I decided to set it aside and come back to it to give it a fair chance. I personally didn’t think it was the book itself. When I started to read it again, I was having the same issue. I stuck with it this time. I’m glad I did. This is a very interesting story. It just has a bit of a slow start. There’s nothing wrong with slow burns. If you’re in a reading rutt though, it can throw you off entirely. I’d suggest pushing through it if it seems slow at first. It’s very worth it.
Characters: Clementine was a pretty stiff character to start with. As the story goes on, she seems to become more comfortable in her own skin. I’m going to be honest, I really don’t have much memory of the other characters. I didn’t hate them. I also didn’t love them.
Narration: The narrator had a pretty soothing voice. I once had to replay a full part because I fell asleep listening to them read.
Final Thoughts: I’m very happy that I was given the wonderful opportunity to read it. I’ll probably go back and reread it one day. It may have a slow start, but it punches a pack after reading it for a while. It’s amazing.
