I only give this 2 stars because I was able to read the entire thing. The writing is dry, choppy, and frustratingly repetitive. Not only do we hear the same "they saved me" story over and over again in detail, but even when the characters talk they repeat themselves. It's like the author had a thesaurus and her goal was to use at least 2 synonyms in each sentence. The characters were flat, and I couldn't feel anything for them. Everything is rehashed over and over, but the ending- which is the only good part of the book- is unbelievably fast. I don't recommend if you treasure your sanity!
