I was disappointed. From the blurb on the back cover I thought it was going to be fantasy. It wasn't. Because I was misled I am unlikely to read another book by this author. Having a misleading back cover does not do an author a service. Not only might people who thought it was something else be disappointed, it may stop people from reading it who would really enjoy it, and its potential readership never finds it. The first person was also too strong.
