  1. Although this sounded good I just couldn t get into it and wasn t finding the characters very likeable I put it aside thinking I d go back to it but after a significant amount of time has passed I don t see me ever finishing it and the sequels, which I understand there is one possibly two at least, don t say read me I only got to page 22 and have no desire to continue giving it a try.
