Once again, I’m in the minority. I’ve been sitting on this review for a few days now going through a catalogue of emotions over it. You ask if I liked it? sorta, kinda. Did I hate it? no, not exactly.

Anyway, as I said, apparently the other readers got a 5* copy. I just didn’t. So take my review with a pinch of salt. Because maybe I’m a
