2014-06-14: I was very intrigued by the title and the setting of the book. The opening went well enough but was a bit bleak. Then it turned out to be… not exactly a wrist-slitter but pretty close. There just wasn’t any hope to be found in the book. The ending felt almost like an add-on, just to make it a little less depressing. It’s well written and I very much enjoyed the style of it although there was a shift in narrator at one point that felt odd. Well done, just not enjoyable.
