I gave It four stars because the end leaves you hanging and wanting more....it either needs a sequel or a cleaner tied up ending
Have to admit that I had to go back and retread a few parts to make sure that I was getting it right but, loved it. Full of stuff that made me think.
Lots of stuff that brought out my emotions.
The main story line started out great, a quick grabber....too bad it didn't continue to stay strong...it took too many side trips into gibberish, which added nothing but boring length...I did much skimming to find and pick up the main characters and story line. Chapters 29 and 30 could be removed completely with no loss! A decent editor with a sharp red pencil (or delete key) could have done wonders for this story....
