If you like lonely, moderately inept, and borderline sociopathic characters then go ahead and read this book. I picked it up when I noticed it was set in Vancouver, and it kept me reading til the end, although I often found it hard to empathize with the characters and their behaviour was sometimes disturbing.
There were a few glaring grammatical errors scattered throughout the book, which just seemed unprofessional — like I was reading someone's blog.
