It surprises me a lot that this book was never made into a film (As far as I know). It has certain things that would have made a very gripping cinematic experience.

Funny that I always think that about this story. They say that it's often mediocre books that make a good film. (This book's far better than that) It's also quite a chunky book.

When I finished it I regretted reading it. I did not like the style of writing at all. I only read the first couple of chapters because I had nothing else to read. Then curiosity got the best of me and I read the rest. I found it the ending disappointing and the rest not worth reading.

It's an okay story, badly told and more than a little improbable. It felt as if the author underestimates the reader's intelligence.

*Possible Spoiler Alert*

Don't people have their finger prints taken when they are arrested in the US?

And I found the fact that a man could be so blinded by a woman very improbable.

I was glad when I was finished with this book and it was over.

Though I found this book interesting I had the whole plot figured out at least half way through the story.

This one is really good... like I don't want to put it down. If you like intelligent mystery, psychological suspense, and some eroticism, this one's for you.

I quite liked this, perhaps because there aren't many books written by woman that feature astronomers as the main characters. Good, but not superb.
