Grotesque like Chuck but not as well written. I felt like the author was using big words sometimes just to prove herself, I'm not fooled. Ending was flat and throughout the whole story, there was nothing to look forward to - No plot line that made me want to turn pages. I finished this book because the writing wasn't terrible and there were many interesting events. I really wanted to love this book but it wasn't working out for me, eventually I finished it just liking it but even then... barely.
