It has a happy ending, that being said it is incredibly triggering for trauma, torture, sexual violence

The writing was familiar to me, the way things people and places are described is short and rich with imagery. As a habitual skimmer, the fast-paced nature of the writing forced me to go back and actually read in order to understand what was going on. 
The book really starts with a bang, and you will never be bored.

- I didn’t really like the book: the idea is great, but poorly executed
- I think the main problem is that there’s too much going on (I don’t understand why Wab had such an elaborate backstory, and then it served almost no purpose)
- anyways, it was okay
