I like books that are character driven, but the characters needs to be interesting and the story needs to compelling enough that I want to keep reading. Both these aspects were missing here. It wasn’t terrible and I could have kept going, but finally, at page 112, I found myself wondering why I wasting time with this book. My overall reaction was that I really didn’t care what happened and that’s when I put the book down. I’d rather spend my time with a book that makes me need to read to read it.
