I liked this book despite its flaws I liked the main character and I liked the story I was very curious about the ending and was mostly satisfied with it I agree with others who wrote about feeling frustrated why did Julia take months to ask uestions that were so obvious to the reader It seemed to be a plot device to add suspense but just ended up being frustrating to read Some of the writing was beautiful but it often felt the author was trying too hard to be intense and deep The descriptive language just got annoying after a while But as a whole the book was enjoyable and I liked the dual settings of Sydney and New York post 911
