Reviews

Ending is off


(3 stars)

CONTAINS SPOILERS. Was a good story until the end, with good narration. But near the beginning of the story, there are several good reasons given why the death is not a suicide, including one that is practically proof. But when you get to the end, a suicide note suddenly turns up. It's like the author didn't know how to end it, so he stuck that in there .

ABRUPT ENDING


(5 stars)

An enjoyable book. but I would have voted for a different ending. Nevertheless, it was still worth reading. Celine Majore is an excellent narrator.

Good story!

Is the reader a robot? Too distracting.
