Hmm. This intrigued me at the start. Then it intrigued me a little more. Then I felt like I was reading a prose version of 'The Perils Of Pauline', as the heroine continually escapes one dangerous situation only to swiftly fall into another one, often unrelated to the previous. Each situation was dealt with far too quickly, I thought, before having a chance to properly impose itself on the reader, and the characters were very shallow too.
Usually I find the sort of ending this story has an awful cop-out, but I don't think I've ever seen that sort of ending deployed in this way, so that was a good idea, and it did explain the random nature of the story. Overall though, I think I'd have preferred it if the story had featured a smaller number of perilous situations and instead dwelt longer upon each to build up the suspense, and to have probed a little deeper into the characters.
