Grasping at Eternity (The Kindrily)

Grasping at Eternity - Karen Amanda Hooper I wrote a post awhile back about negative reviews, and how I don't review if I don't finish, and a very wise blogger pointed out that knowing what a blogger doesn't like can be valuable to publishers and authors too. Then another blogger mentioned she did a did not finish post and I thought it was a great idea. That isn't to say that the writing is poor or the characters are poorly constructed, it's personal on my end. So, here we go: This should have been powerful, but I didn't connect with the main character. Her emotions were well written, I just didn't feel them personally. I was confused with the dual perspective and the character I liked, her brother Mikey was killed. I mean, I should have been prepared because that is what the synopsis already told me, but something just didn't click with me.
