What a nice surprise. An inherently engaging plot, I love it when a story makes me curious enough to keep moving forward, to see what happens next, where it will take me. At the core of the story is an out-of-the-box thinking. I was definitely surprised by the original idea and loved that surprise. I'm always happy to find a story that surprises me keeps me unable to guess where the plot will lead me. Yes, there are elements of sadness or depression here, even in the romance part of the story, a troubled hero, tormented by his past and present. He tries to do his best or what he feels is the right thing to do. There is a thread of sadness drawn all over the story which brought me to these thoughts that pop up and come to me every now and then, what will happen next ? There’s a constant threat with which we live on our little piece of land. Is there a solution? In short, an appealing, smart, and in my opinion too sensitive with maybe a beacon of hope on the horizon.
