I couldn't do it. While the plot was somewhat interesting, I felt no connection to the characters. Not enough to want to keep going. I only made it to the end of chapter 3 and just couldn't bring myself to pick it up. Perhaps I'm not in the mood for it. Storywise, it is fine but I'm in the mood for more character driven stories or perhaps stories with more introspection. But for now, I will give up on this novel until I'm in the mood for it.
