I cannot hate this book, as much as I was confused by it and tried to really, really love it. Firstly, it was just the right amount of dark for me; and just the right amount of sacrifice and survival, but alas, it didn't really speak to me.
This book is VERY well written and has a great story too (including all those little tales added at the very end of each chapter), but I found myself itching to finish and not because I was captivated.
This is one of those absolutely hate or absolutely love books. Although I have chosen to be indifferent, it is only because I cannot fairly give this a rating (good or bad) because it just didn't work for me.
That being said, I highly recommend it for those who like soft urban fantasy/dystopian reads. :)
