What I liked most about this book is that it's unlike anything I've read in a long time. I really liked the story line. It is full of surprises. Devin is the main character. He loses his wife in a horrible way. He is overcome by grief and anger. There is nothing he wouldn't do to get back to her. However other forces are at work. Devin in an attempt to be reunited with his wife is put in charge of selling the 'formula' to a young girl named, Nadine. I really like Devin. His choices throughout the story shape who he becomes. I found I could really relate to his character. Devin is forced to take responsibility for his choices in life and death. The story is mysterious, adventurous, heartbreaking and at times funny. There are a few twists and turns that keep the story rolling. H.A. Goodman addresses many socially relevant issues in this book also. Overall it's a good read. I really enjoyed my time reading this.
