What could have been a really great story was just lacking in so many areas. I’ve yet to decide if this is the author’s fault, or if something was lost in translation. I can’t tell you how many times I thought – that isn’t the right word at all. Occasionally – a good book suffers from a bad translator. This could be the case. Still – there didn’t seem to be enough build. The mystery hardly escalated before the answer was on the reader in what felt like a matter of a few pages. And the friendships and relationships, which should have left the reader feeling… something, were lacking in true sweet and personal moments that bring characters together in our hearts.
