I had higher expectations for this book, given the promise of the subject matter and all the rave reviews. It was a little disjointed and slow-moving for me, especially in the beginning. It picks up later. The writing is beautiful, the story is unique, and the series has potential. It just didn't have the quality I was looking for...the one where you bust out your iPhone kindle app every few minutes you get to sneak in a couple paragraphs.
