I couldn't get into this book; between the main character being an umbrella artist, and all the rich people having non conversations, I had to tap out. Why does no one have direct conversations with the other characters? What is magic about this mansion? Why keep reading? Why indeed.....

Honestly, I am a huge fan of Kristen Cashore's Graceling series. I've read and re-read all three books and absolutely loved them, because she has a gift for creating a great storyline and having the skill required to execute it. So when I saw this book on a library shelf, I eagerly grabbed it and headed home as soon as possible to start it. However, the beginning, no matter how well written, was quite boring. As much as the idea of five alternate realities appeal to me, I didn't get past the first fifty pages before tossing the book aside. Sorry, but this book just didn't capture my attention.

This was an interesting book. However, from the synopsis and the way the story starts it is impossible to anticipate where this book will go. It becomes a tale on how a seemingly minor choice can have drastically different outcomes. As the novel explored each choice available to Jane in an innocuous conversation with her friend the scenarios just became increasingly stranger. At first, the story seems to be a simple realistic fictional mystery. Then it warps into some odd science fiction options that fit outlandishly within the framework of the original story. As a result, I had a hard time getting through this book - not only was it slightly repetitive, but it just started to get weird. The last two choices were especially strange and just left me shaking my head in the turn they'd taken with the story. Not quite what I would have expected from Cashore after the wonderfulness of the Graceling realm series.
