This novel is twisty and unexpected. I had trouble figuring out which way was up sometimes (in the best of all possible ways). I don’t want to say too much, because part of the intrigue of this book is just experiencing it from start to finish, without going in with any preconceived notions. I read it through in one day, because it took me down a path that I hadn’t expected to go on, and I wasn’t sure how I got there, and I didn’t know how we would all get back off or whether things would be better on the other side of not.
Now that you’re totally confused, just go read the novel and decide for yourself. It’s a fast read, and regardless of your feelings on the story or writing, it definitely makes you think. A lot. And that’s usually a good thing.
