This book wasn't really what I was expecting.
When I first read the summary and started reading this book, I was expecting something different from what I got. Maybe I was missing that 'we're on the run from a horrible government organisation' feel. Instead I felt as if the characters were hiding from the local police. While this wasn't a bad thing, I didn't really got a feel for the direness of the situation these talented people were put in.
On a good note, I really liked the characterisation. They were written in a way in that I could distinguish each character by just listing their different qualities and not just their names and appearances. They were believable and I really like that. I could follow the story and the choices they made very well, and I didn't get very angry when the main characters did something (or didn't do something) that I wanted them to.
So overall, it was a very enjoyable book that I read quite quickly and couldn't put down. I didn't get bored and I wanted to keep reading. But it did lack that something that I was expecting.
