My rating system is as follows:
5 stars - Excellent, Worth Every Penny, Made It Into My Personal Library!
4 stars - Great book, but not a classic.
3 stars - Good overall, generally well written.
At the beginning, I thought the characters were unbelievable, but as the book went on I came to understand and care for them - even with their eccentricities!
