This book was just blasé. It followed the format of the tale most people are familiar with, though it added some small details to make it slightly different. But it wasn’t enough to feel fully fleshed out. Overall, I was not impressed with the story or the characterization and I never really felt like I was inside their heads or cared too much about their feelings. That sounds a little harsh, but what I’m trying to say is that I wished there was more depth to this story. I had a hard time liking it because it didn’t feel like I was getting the whole picture. Not a recommend.
