~May contain spoilers~ I did enjoy the book very much, and it did captivate me! But there were a few things I thought to be kind of, awkward. One of them being the dialogue... I feel like they tried a little too hard to emphasize drama in the dialogue, and it made it seem a little unnatural and just kind of awkward. I also thought the introduction of Max's wife's death was a little random, they introduced it and it never really had a conclusion... like okay, now he knows who is responsible, but what was the point behind all of that? It seemed a bit strange. However, the story did have some unexpected turns, and it was really easy to stay interested throughout.
