I started this book and thought it was pretty good. The more I read, the less interested I became. I don't know if it was the writing style (which was a bit wandering, but not un-lovely), or the characters (I didn't really relate to any of them. Also the two boys... the naration drives hard that they are opposites - light and dark, but not in an interesting way. Maybe that changes later on, but it wasn't endearing the book to me at all), or maybe I just wasn't in the mood to read something like this. Either way, I'm not going to finish because life's too short to read books you don't like.
