I have to admit, the beginning of the book seemed to ramble on and on about things that did not connect to the story. I found this distracting, I kept trying to figure out when everything was going to come together, but it never did in the way I was expecting. The bounce from subject to subject was also a bit random and difficult to follow at points. In my opinion there was not much of a story line and I was constantly waiting for one to appear. Also, the synopsis I read previous to starting this book, seemed to be describing a completely different book. I was expecting something that never came.

I wasn't sure what to expect, and I almost put the book down after the first few chapters, but I kept on, and found this to be quite an interesting book.

Basically this is a book filled with a collection of letters from a woman suffering from a rare brain condition, and her father. They contained a lot of complaining about injustice and cruelty. Some of the complaints were completely understandable, while others seemed quite over dramatized. By the end of the book, I had grown to feel impartial to Anya, but was still curious to see how her life planned out. I was so disappointed when a lot of my questions I had were never answered.

Overall this was not an impressive book. I mainly read it to get to the end, but even that was pointless since the ending seemed to make Anya look even more dramatic and mysterious. I would rate this book a 2/5.
