Opinion on Book

I liked the book because it was dramatic and mysterious and has a really big revelation towards the end of the book that left me in awe. Alongside that, the book had certain humorous parts that caused me to chuckle. I disliked the fact that although it was mysterious, the book was slow moving and boring at times.
