So this was the first offering of Amazon's new prime feature that started this month, and well, it was an okay read. It didn't overly impress me, nor did I actively dislike it. It was a solid story, the pacing was good and it was engaging enough for me to read to the end without much of a struggle...yet not engaging enough to keep me reading or wanting more of the the story.
What I found lacking however was the characters. Oh sure, aside from the two little girls (who weren't that interesting) the characters were complicated and moved the story forward...but I did not feel connected to any character. There was nothing that really made me love them, or want good things to come to them...nor did I actively dislike any. They each had their purpose in the story.
So because of the disconnection with the characters, I can't say I particularly enjoyed this book. Nor can I recommend this book to anyone. Oh I guess it's a fine book if you aren't interested in engaging with the characters...if you are reading just for the safe of a decently told story...then yeah, perhaps this is a book for you. But if you are like me, who firmly believe that the characters can make or break a story...then this novel is probably better off as a miss.
