Summary / Annotation
Easy and fun submitted by lnevans on August 23, 2017, 2:34pm I've been in kind of a reading rut - reading everything super slowly. This was easy to read and it kept my coming back. The two timelines, carefully laying out information was interesting and fun BUT there were definitely things I didn't love. The writing got on my nerves at times and was a little too flowery. I felt like Williams let readers believe one thing and then, late in the story, dropped some OBVIOUS hint that it was something else and then 50 pages later confirmed it was that. I also thought the ending felt a little too perfect.
