  1. I couldn’t finished this book.
    I read until the middle of the book
    but I had to stop reading it because
    I didn’t connect with the plot, nor with
    the characters.

    On one hand, the plot is extremely slow
    but on the other hand I suppose that the end must be
    amazing!(that’s why I tried really hard to read the whole book,
    but finally I couldn’t)

    So,that’s what i want to know, The end reveals all the secret’s of Vida’s life?
    or not?

  2. Absolutely yes!
    The end reveals the unimaginable Vida´s secret. You might have let the book when the best part is going to start. The tales from the beginning to the middle are essential to understand the end. I encourage you to try it again.
    See you!
