It is not a bad book. I just wouldn't say that it is a good book either. To me, there was not a big wow factor that captured me in the book. It all felt like something I'd read before. It wasn't super original and I do not feel like this book changed my outlook on life or could really change anyone's outlook on life. A good book makes you question things, understand things, or at least take you on an adventure. This book really didn't o any of that for me. It also wasn't the worst thing I've ever read. I didn't want to gouge my eyes out reading it. It's just a very plain and average book. In my opinion, it can't compare at all to so many other amazing books. I would definitely recommend other books over this one.
