I really did want to like this book. It was a really great idea for a story! But I couldn't get past the following, and it really ruined it for me:
1. The conversations between people got to be too long. tedious, teenager-ish, and sometimes had nothing to do with what was happening.
2. I couldn't really understand the story, though maybe that was the point because,
3. it was "to be continued".
I stuck with it though, because I really wanted to find out what happens in the end! But, see number 4. It just wasn't enough of a cliffhanger for me to want to read a second book, if there is one.
