    very interesting and unique base, I felt this book had TONS of potential if the characters weren't so cliché - seems as if the author has a huge crush on the main female character, descriptions of her were pretty cheesy after a while. could have been a great book with more focus on how our internal thoughts, fears and desires affect our outside world, which in turn affects us.

    i agree with you, the female character being the "turn-off" for me, i didnt finish the book because of her.
