I really didn't like the 1st half of this book. Mira just talks and talks and talks. She comes across as arrogant, and just annoying. I don't think I liked her until her initial interactions with Michael when they were on the boat. The 2nd half of the book is much more enjoyable. Maybe it is because I switched from audiobook to paperback (or maybe not) but I really enjoyed the 2nd half of the book. You finally get to see a vulnerability in Mira. Oddly, she comes across as more "human".
