Good for Younger Readers
Although the book is written well and narrated well, the characters are all stuck in a state of adolescence. Granted, the two main characters are in early adult hood (18/21). The spend most of their time either whining about things being unfair or trying to ignore the reality of their situations. This would not be a problem it they actually matured throughout the story but they do not. Lastly, the supporting characters are all just ash one dimensional and immature, be it in different ways.
Unfortunately, there is not particularly interesting item of note. No unique concept or enemies. Everything is rather standard, or at least written by someone who has only a passing knowledge of the subject. Basically, no real explanations of things.
Performance was good.
Unfortunately no, after a while I found the immaturity and general attitude of the main characters annoying. I was actually unable to make it to the end.
