I m a little torn as to how to review this book Obviously, I liked it since I gave it 4 stars I even think this would be a great movie I love the premise and I really wasn t expecting this This Sci Fi Thriller really intrigued me but at the same time, some parts were a bit slow It makes sense if you think that we re literally talking about 15 lives though A lot will happen but the back and forth was a bit much sometimes.Overall I totally recommend it if the summary interests you SMALL SPO I m a little torn as to how to review this book Obviously, I liked it since I gave it 4 stars I even think this would be a great movie I love the premise and I really wasn t expecting this This Sci F
