And suddenly this series got a little, well, ridiculous.
I mean, I’m sorry: the entire back third of this novel had me rolling my eyes. I couldn’t believe I was reading the same story! I still rated it at a 4-stars for one reason and one reason alone: character development. Leo and Raisa develop not only from CHILD 44 to SECRET SPEECH, but throughout the latter as well. That’s the sign of a good character.
That being said, I still think the ending bit was absurd.
