I really did not like this book at first, the beginning manages to somehow be slow and intense. it scares you off a bit... then as i got further i got really into it and i didn't want to put it down. then i got the ending. What an absolutely terrible way to end a book; i refuse to say how it ends and spoil it for any future potential readers of this book, but i was not pleased with how it ended what so ever. it had its shining moments; made me smile or shed a few tears here and there, but in the end all i could focus on was that i read the entire book just for such a terrible ending. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
