That being said, there are a couple things that bugged me a bit. The biggest issue I had was how the end of a conversation was pretty much always stated or pointed out. It was in thought by the main character, Ellie, but it was done way too often:
Location 299: ...he's shutting me down, ending that conversation
Location 388: ...his way of stopping dead a conversation he doesn't want to get into...
Location 450: He's ending this conversation
Location 520: He's calling an end to this conversation
Location 1030 and 1031: I don't want this conversation here. In fact, I'm not sure if I want this conversation at all
Location 1069: He isn't even entertaining this conversation
Location 1241: I don't want to start that conversation
I'm really not sure why it bothered me so much. Except that maybe I don't think it needs to be mentioned at all if the writing is descriptive enough. Let alone that many times. But, this could just be a me thing...
Also, there are a lot characters being introduced but I'm really not sure any of them are necessary. One or two may be (one of the clarifications I'm hoping for in Part 2) but the others, surely not. I don't mean that there shouldn't be other characters at all, but most of them are being inserted as potential plot focuses when they could possibly just be secondary and tertiary characters. Again...that may also just be a me thing, or something that will be explained in Part 2.
Just as it finally starts to get good, the darn thing ends and I have to buy the next several books to continue the story.
I'm glad I didn't have to pay for, what amounted to, 2 chapters
