I am rating this book based on the suspense writing only. The beginning of the book led me to wanting to discard it; the metephors, similes and allusions did not resonate the imagery the author was hoping to illustrate. In fact, some of them made absolutely no sense at all. However, I did not put it down, I kept reading. Then, catching me unaware, the author chages gears and leads into the set up of the unexpected scenes with a mastery that had me turning the pages and reading faster and faster wanting to know what happened next. The author manages to take the reader to frenzied heights of anticipation, delivers, then lets her audience recover and starts the climb again, much like that of a thrill ride on a rollercoaster.
