My BookCrossing Rating: 6 out of 10 stars
This book started off kind of slow and I was tempted to put it aside a few times as I’ve got so many other TBR books piling up behind it. But I wanted to give it at least halfway, which is about 376 pages since this is a fairly long book. Fortunately, the action got going around page 200 and I was glad I kept reading. This book could’ve been half as long and been even better though… I found it going off on tangents quite often so that my mind would start to wander and I’d forget what I’d just read.

In the beginning some of the phobia characteristics experienced by the characters, one in particular, hit a little too close to home, and since I don’t enjoy being reminded of my own shortcomings, I was getting discouraged with it, and again, almost another reason for me to put it aside. Until around page 200 when it started to become apparent that these phobias were implanted by a madman, then I felt better about that part. :)

Overall, a very odd book, which I had mixed feelings about, but actually liked it more than I disliked it. Thanks for sharing bunnybee!
