Ugh. I really wanted to like this book, especially since I really like the author’s Graceling book series. Sadly, this book doesn’t compare to those books at all. I found it to be a jumbled, confusing, annoying mess.
The book tells several different versions of the same basic story about Jane, a young woman that’s lost her aunt and caregiver to a tragic accident. She visits a mysterious mansion on an island that is owned by an eccentric family. While at the mansion, the versions start at the same point in time and then splinter off into different directions depending on the choice Jane makes. I really don’t like these types of books (I despised the book Life After Life) and considering I didn’t like any of the characters in this book, this was really hard to finish. The story wasn’t that interesting, no matter what version was being told, and I just didn’t see the point of the book.
Once again, I’ve taken one for the team and read this book so you don’t have to. You’re welcome.
