I couldn't connect with the characters. Something about the writing style is just incredibly confusing. I had a hard time figuring out which character was whom at first, and then after that, the clearly delineated fast-forwards was weird and disconcerting. It was like AC 1 when you do a thing and then suddenly: *flat female voice* "fast forwarding to a more recent memory."
I also feel like the plotty stuff got away from the author a bit, grew and mutated and fuck knows what else. But eh, mostly I couldn't get into it. *shrug* YMMV
