This book was just flat. I'm sorry, but it had no flavor, no flare. It was boring as heck, much too long, and full of repetitive scenes and descriptions. I couldn't force myself to care about the characters, or their earth-shaking "dilemma". I just got tired of it all so quickly, it felt as if the author hadn't gone to much trouble writing this book. Even the ending was sawed-off and hasty.
I can't say I hate this book, because things that deserve my hatred must, by definition, have content in them that will trigger such a reaction. There was just nothing in this book that was worth the energy it takes for me to hate it.
