This was definitely a bit different than I thought it would be. I thought that this would be a suspense novel (and in fact it was advertised as so) but it really wasn't. I felt it was an okay book but it definitely wasn't as suspenseful or thrilling as I was lead to believe it would be. I liked the switching back and forth between the present and 1985. I felt like the ending was the best part of the book and the reason why this book was tolerable for me. I don't think I will be recommending this book to anyone.
