Multiple descriptions are reused and it can get a little repetitive. The story itself seems interesting but lacks character consistency and development. Most of the dialogue also sounds unnatural. The romantic options are not bad, but the development of their interests is awkward at best. Other than that, it was an enjoyable read and has a lot of potential, but not really worth the price I paid.

It is a good story. I like all the paths and traits that you could choose to go and develop. The choices build your personality as you go and open unique choices late game. Most importantly I enjoyed it everytime I replayed it( over 10 times ) and never got bored. It has crazy stupid things, fun, sensitive stuff to do and also each part is like another story yet slowly building one story. It is very well worth your time. It costed a bit high than most out there but was worth now that I read it.
