Book #37 for 2014
I feel like I should have absolutely loved this book. But I didn’t. I didn’t dislike it, but I went in expecting to be wowed and found it to be just pretty good. The makings of a wow book were there. It had lots of intriguing subplots and characters, and it held my interest very well, and the ending was satisfying. Perhaps the wowing ingredients were too carefully arranged and just a smidgen too sanitized for the reader’s protection? Or maybe the ending was wrapped up too tidily? I just never felt the grim suspense that I kept thinking I ought to be feeling.
