This is one of those books where I just had too high an expectation for:The first part of the book which basically sets out the whole premise / background is sooo very slow. And took up half the book!! Did not enjoy this part at all and would have rated the book 2 stars at most but...This is one of those books where I am torn between 2 characters and just can't decide who should win!Okay, so morally, I know which side I should be on but still... it was just so tense & suspenful! I love the second & third parts of this book which is basically the second half of the novel. This is where the excitement of a thriller lies and I have to admit, yes, it was fantastic. So don't give up in the first half, keep going!
