I tried several times to read this book. Unfortunately, I just couldn't seem to get into it. I was confused from the very beginning. I couldn't even picture the setting. All I could think was, this would probably make a great movie. If someone else could make it come to life for me, I would probably really enjoy it. I like the concept, but the writing was stilted and didn't flow for me. I am not saying others wouldn't love this book, but for me, it isn't my kind of book.
