Writing this review is a little hard for me. It's hard because I know that I'm giving a low score to a part of the authors' soul. Though I appreciate her attempt to teleport me into the world in her mind-- I have to admit that I never reached it.
The characters didn't feel real, at all. It felt, to me, that the author was just talking to us. Like she didn't think the characters through enough to understand what they SHOULD say next. On top of that, she stated the obvious WAY too much.
Overall, the concept seems great-- but the author couldn't pull it off. I really feel like she should have just let them sit in her mind a bit longer-- because it's obvious to me that she didn't know them all that well.
