  • Did this book hold your attention?  Yes 
  • Was the story what you expected? Were you disappointed? Surprised? It was partially as I expected, there were many twists and turns that surprised me, so nothing disappointed me. 
  • Do you think that the book was suitable for your age? Too violent, swearing, sex, etc.: Yes, I think it was very suitable for my age. It wasn’t really vulgar at all. 
  • Did you like/dislike the book? Why? I actually kind of liked this book, it made me want to keep reading it. Mysterious stories like these make me feel like I’ve got a way better life than I think I do. But I also think it’d be nice if the story had some more action or if it was more blockbuster, then it’d be epic. 
  • Who would you recommend this book to, even if you disliked it? Give an example. I recommend this book to everyone because you might realize who you should and shouldn’t trust.
  • Is this a stand-alone book, or is it part of a series? It is a standalone book.
  • Does the cover art match the style of the book inside? It very much does.  What the cat did was very mind-twisting.
