Await Your Reply by Dan Haon (4)

This disappointing book has three plot lines throughout, seemingly unconnected, which supposedly go together in the conclusion. I didn't enjoy the characters, found it not worth my effort to follow the plot lines, and the ending left me with many unresolved questions. The main problem, it seems to me, is that a time line is needed in order for it to make perfect sense. The author leaves us guessing who the characters really are and when each scene occurred because they couldn't have happened in the order that they're presented and almost none of the characters can be whom they appear. I do not recommend this book.
