Write your personal interpretation of the novel. Discuss the choices the author made that you like, and the choices that you did not like. This is your place to feel free to express what you thought of the novel, but you have to back it up with evidence from the text.

To me over all the book was ok. At times it got very confusing because if the different books. Something that i really liked was the fact that it keep me wondering what was going on. I kind of had to think what was going to happen next meaning it kept me on my toes. Thing that i did not like was the books part because it was hard for me to keep up once the books changed. I felt like one minute i was reading something then getting interested. Then i notice that the book changes and i get lost all over again.
