Hmm...well this started very slow and made me more aware of the fact that I'm not a fan of books that take place in mental hospitals/institutes.
It took a long time to get anywhere and I was on the verge of giving up when Faraday appeared and I started to get excited, thinking the story would pick up and get on with it. Unfortunately, we stayed in the mental hospital for another good portion of the book and we went through what synesthesia is, which I admit is very interesting, but didn't give much away with the plotline and where it was going. It was about 150 pages from the end when it started getting good and from there I more or less devoured it, only for it to turn rather sci-fi-y. I like sci-fi sometimes but not in this. I kinda felt let down.
I don't think I'll be reading the next book in the series.
