I wanted to like this story, but it wasn't compelling at all. I couldn't figure out what exactly Muri was trying to do or how she felt about things - it was all so vague. The relationships didn't feel very real - I totally didn't get any romantic vibe between Muri and Rubin. There was too much "telling" in the story and not enough "showing". ( )
