The book was pretty bad. Plot was asinine, to the point of being laughable. Dialogue was stilted, full of cliches, felt completely forced, unnatural. No character development. Characters are cliched, and ridiculous specially the villain. The Hero doesn't have any backbone and lets himself be manipulated over and over. In short the book was a wreck.
The narration definitely did not help at all. Dara Rosenberg's narration is grating with her over accentuation of "ing" ending words and the way her "s" comes out, to the point of being distracting and incredibly annoying. Sorry, I'll try to avoid books narrated by her in the future.
This was one frustrating book to review. The background story being my line of work was one I enjoyed to an extent; however the other stuff happening were so ridiculous that I lost sight of what could have been a clincher for me. Max was just not decisive for me as a man, he lacked a backbone that I like in my heroes; Olivia was easily swayed and didn't seem to stick with any one decision she made about him. The anti-hero Analise was just an irritating character who should have stayed the way she was not that last minute attempt to redeem her which then made her character lose all credibility as no sane person unless they have a split personality can do what she did and change over night. Overall I was left irritated by the book and couldn't quite get into it - my stars are for the author's somewhat knowledge of the subject of consequences of disrupted attachments in children and young people which is a passion of mine.
