    The story had some interesting characters and ideas, but the author tried to do too much Some subplots didn t have complete, or convincing, resolutions Some didn t have any at all A bit confusing as to what was happening at times.

    It s been a while since I ve read a book this bad The writing style was all over the place, there was no real story line or plot, I didn t find any of the characters relatable, I m not even sure why or how I finished it I just wanted to see if at any point it would redeem itself, which it did not I wouldn t recommend it.
