Mysterious

I could tell by the synopsis and how the story was unfolding that it would have a twist to explain everything. I was right but it felt a little lacklustre to me in the end. This book is definitely worth listening to because there's no doubt that it's good but it just dug such a deep hole of mystery that the final explanation wasn't enthralling enough, in my opinion, to dig itself back out again.
Nevertheless, the story is deep, sad, touching and ends on a good note.

Tried it three times

I really wanted to love it...So much so I tried three times...the story line just did not do it for me.
