Choosing to read this book, after reading the blurb, I had thought that it would be an interesting suspenseful thriller, but after the very first chapter, I lost interest. I did finish it though. First I would talk about the characters and would be very honest, there are too many to keep track of which didn't only make the story confusing, I had to re-read some of the parts to know who was who, what exactly they did and what happend after. Even the main characters are not built well, they aren't given the environment to develop, there isn't much written about them, the emotions, the 'why' behind their doings, and many more things. The plot didn't develop as I had expected it to. For an approx 190 pages book, these things could have been worked upon. Although the author has added female characters in the story, they didn't do much in it. They were just there and their involvement in any scene had no meaning or if it did, seemed forced. However, I liked how the points of suspense throughout the book were well maintained. The cover design is a perfect match with the story along with the title and also, the concept of the story which was the first thing that had grabbed my attention while choosing this book to read, is really intriguing. Overall, it was an okayish read for me.
