Zhangran asked:

200 pages into the book, and the characters still feel remote. Is the book any good at all?

Juonithz I liked the book but mainly for its premise and potential. I didn't really feel the love between the characters because they were so two dimensional.
Kristin Tonay I agree with Zhangran--I also think they remain flat after having finished the book.
Kate stick with it! I felt the same at the beginning but loved it in the end.
