REVIEW

 

It was a good book, but I guess it’s different from what I expected. I liked most of it, but there were a few things that didn’t allow me to love it as I had other books from the author. I recommend to anyone, willing to try it, to read the warnings and take them seriously.

What I liked about the book was the mystery. Guessing the motives is something I enjoy a lot and this book had me doing all sort of hypothesis, all of them wrong of course, which was fantastic because there was a lot of surprises here.

What I didn’t liked about it was that there was not real connection between the main characters, none of them made a good job creating empathy, I simply couldn’t care for any of them and the possibility of a relationship felt forced. Another thing I didn’t like, and maybe the most important, was that the story felt a little confusing, I’m not sure if it was me having trouble with translations or the story by itself, but I got very lost, especially at the last pages and that made it a hard to liked it as I was expecting to.

In general it was an interesting story, as dark and disturbing as I liked it from the author, but lacking some of the strong emotions I generally enjoy. I think readers who like dark theme books can be able to enjoy it.
