I thought this book was a travesty. The entire book, paragraph by paragraph I thought it was going to turn into a really good book. It was a boring narrative of repetitiveness, I felt like each chapter was the cliff hanger to a melodramatic soap opera. I would be very interested in a positive opinion of this book.
