I didn't think I'm gonna like this when I started reading this. An acute bipolar depressive with not so good (best?)friend ex-lover? Their first encounter in the early pages didn't endear me to either of them.
Surprisingly, or ironically, came Darian with his Essex-written-accents that drew me to read on (could be sheer stubbornness on my side, since I've to assume, predict, etc half of what he said, really). Could be the same effect he gave to Ash, Darian made me laugh.
I could go without self-angsts Ash put himself and everyone rand
him, but that also what made this story real for me. So, a surprised 4 stars. Totes ahwight.
