Interesting at first, but as the story and characters progressed, I lost interest. Most stories pull me in, making me want to read more, to turn the page and find out what happens. I can't put my finger on why, but reading this one became a chore. The writing style was fine. The topics were interesting and the author clearly has something to say. Perhaps its just chemistry, or my mood. Maybe I'll try again later, but for now, I have to say I was underwhelmed.
