Gripping story. Could not put the book down.
I read the book while traveling, thinking it would be quite fun and interesting. Exemptions made for two or three unpredictable paragraphs, I was throughly disappointed by the book. I do have physical copy, and I read it twice as to get something out of it, but it just wasn’t... good. Like at all.
As always, far better than the film. Though there isn't much difference from the film; the character development is very clear.
