Plot: The intriguing premise is not helped by confusing plotting, slow pacing, and the lack of an overarching storyline.
Prose: The prose lacks the needed momentum to keep readers turning the pages. Additionally, the writing lacks sentence variation and suffers from a lot of repetition.
Originality: Again, while the premise is interesting, any originality is undercut by the confusing plotting and underdeveloped characters.
Character Development: The characters need further development if readers are to identify with them. The narrator is largely unchanged throughout the book and meets few emotional challenges.
