So close to being great, but doesn't quite make it
March 20, 2018
This book is so close to being great, but misses the fence.Bouncing around from character to character for each chapter makes for a cumbersome read. Keeping track of characters that were left several chapters ago, to be reunited with them later and having to recall via the family tree provided where they fit in is rather time consuming. It takes a few rounds to keep them straight and often times felt like the characters were being abandoned. The story is amazing in that a family survives. This is one book that if done right will make a better movie.
