Best part of story, including ending: What I hated about this story is that everyone dies.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene was when the solar flare comes because it was entertainingly scary.

Opinion about the main character: What I liked most about Johnathan was that he had the will to find out more information from Diana about Lucinda.
