2 in terms of me liking the book, it just left me with a not happy feeling or more precisely i didn't feel good when reading it, though that might be due to good writing and a disturbing issue. so me feeling 2 BUT the writing was maybe three.
Also the ending was so-so, it didn't feel as strong it had kind of a happy ending that so didn't feel right for the book, though maybe the other parts left you feeling so bad that the author took pity on the readers? still felt wrong with the happy ending and i am one of the people that loves happy ending!!!
i really must discipline myself, not just jump in and read only books that my friends have previously read!! i'm so not a good judge! :)
