I enjoyed reading this book and I didn't find it to be at all slow. I definitely liked the intrigue vibe and the creepiness factor. It did keep me wanting more. It was quick read and the revelation at the end is quite good, though I wish... I don't know, it seemed all crammed in there. There was a lot of build up and not much dealing with the fallout from it.
The narrator/main character is, as other reviewers have said, hard to really care about, especially in the beginning. Even as time goes on, she just seems to be a difficult person who knows what's in her best interest and yet doesn't always do that. She's not really a "thinker."
