While the book did deal with some pretty dark themes, I was expecting on page graphic scenes, which honestly didn’t really happen.

I didn’t have the right expectations going into this book, I will concede.

However, when I first started reading, I was bored out of my mind for the first 150-200 pages-ish. I thought the pacing was also a bit off at first, and I was pretty confused about the plot. Some things weren’t explained or didn’t make sense, some characters magically figured something out out of the blue. 

While I did enjoy the dad’s chapters, I don’t see the point in them. To me, they didn’t really add anything to the story. Perhaps showing the perspective of a grieving father?

Ngl, I kinda knew what was going to happen in the first pages, it wasn’t that hard to figure out.
