I usually love FLB’s books, but this one contained characters that really annoyed me or I could care less what happened to them. Some were not fully fleshed out and were lacking any personality. I would skip this one.
Now, Viera Diets had GREAT characters that you feel you know and want to learn more about. You are also sad when they are gone.
This novel started out with a good premise, but somehow the ending was a hot mess. It was like she got to a certain number of pages and had to be done, so she abruptly finished the story off with no regard to the established plot.
Now, for the best novel… Belzhar! It had an excellent, original plot line with memorable characters, surprise plot twists, and a satisfying ending.
