Disappointing that the authors never explain WHY it happened. This is a difficult book to read, too much descriptive nonsense that does not carry the plot forward in any way, too many characters that are not necessary. And then, after spending hours of reading, there is no explanation as to who Evie is, why she came, why it happened. Nothing to give the book a reason. This book lacks the compellingness of his other books, a real letdown. Stephen, please do not write with your son again, it is too laborious.
