Mehso-so

I liked it, but didn't love it. For me the middle dragged a bit and I wasn't in a hurry to finish. There wasn't really that sense of 'I need to know what happens next'. What was done really well however, was creating a scenario that made me uncomfortable. There are many variations of this situation that could realistically occur. Overall a 3 star read for me.
