I felt that the book was a rather good read, there were several parts that were heart wrenching and heart warming. However by the end of the book it feels like the events just kept repeating themselves. It was like the same events just kept happening over and over with only minor changes in each incident. I also felt that the end of the book happened too fast and was kept open with no closure at all.
I still would recommened this book for people to read, but unfortanitly it just wasn't one of my favorites.
