Review

 

Rating: 2.8 out of 5 stars

It was okay-ish. I was just a bit disappointed because the book received too much hype and it just did not reach my expectation.

It was intriguing but very predictable.

I guessed the mystery even before I was halfway through the book.

I would not say it was an awful book because it is not. I get that many people liked this one.

I think that it is just not what I have been used to reading, something that did not interest me that much and the way I knew the conclusion even before the mystery began to unravel kind of what thwarted me.
