Did the plot pull you in or did you feel you had to force yourself to read the book? I was pulled in right from the beginning. The development of the characters keeps you wanting more and you won't be satisfied until you read the last page and by then you're just drooling for the second book.
How realistic was the characterization? Dialogue and character responses were plausible. My favourite character was Kendrick who seemed to play the part of mystery man although he did come across as a selfish in some parts.
Did you feel you were experiencing the time and place in which the book was set? The settings were not complicated for this book so readers can easily comprehend time, place and situation. The story was enjoyable and I really did feel as if all events were unfolding right in front of me.
