It is a well woven, full circle kind of story that can be finished in one session. 
Better to analyse thoroughly to get the most out of it though.

It is a bit repetitive, not much happens until the end, but somewhere near the end I was really rooting for the characters to make it and was left devastated by the ending. So very tragic.

The writing takes a bit to get used to and relies heavily on dialogue. The characters feel very real, thus are complicated though and not immediately likeable. This author has studied people and the way they speak.

Reminded me of the play Death of a Salesman when it comes to the themes of it.

It is objectively a well written story, but it left me with a feeling of dread, very dark story.
