I just finished this book. It looked very interesting, and was a good read until the last 15 pages or so- the ending seemed very random, strange, and hasty. I would recommend it if not for the conclusion; however, those last few pages really ruined it for me.

I have to echo the first comment. I read this book several months ago, and was pleasantly surprised with it up until the sudden, borderline non sequitur conclusion. Very off-putting, and a real shame, since it could have been a pretty solid little read otherwise.

Don't waste your time with this story unless you enjoy being frustrated by your fiction.
