My Opinion / Lazy Review

This is a fun read with a surprising amount of depth to it. The main character is weird and quirky and you get to follow him around without really being able to get into his head. He has a tragic backstory and his power makes his view on life somewhat apathetic. This means that often in the story he does crazy things that catch the other characters and readers off guard. I would highly recommend this book. However, be warned the story does drag a bit in the middle once the restarts begin.

What will I remember after finishing this review? (Characters, Plots, Action)

I will remember Ryan as he is one of the more interesting main characters that I have read about. He is presented as a psychotic madman but he has many layers to him. As you read you learn more about him and his actions while the same take on a differnment. My personal read on him landed on a sad man who feels hollow searching for the one thing that could make him feel. Now, that’s my read on the character but he has enough depth that I wouldn’t be surprised if other readers came away with a different impression of him.

Am I going to check out more from this series or author after this lazy review?

There are more in the series. They are on my to-read list of good reads.
