I found this book to be weak in all areas.

The story line about a company providing assisted suicides was not fully developed - certain plot elements seemed to be there simply to fill up space. None of the characters felt real or believable. The writing style was poor.

A enjoyable quick read. Ended too quickly without enough answers and explanation for me.

Wow!!! Just wow. If this is what quick reads are all like, I'll not be reading anymore.

Very childlike story. Not a lot of description or believable story.

I hope that a full length novel by this author isn't as bad.

I'll stick with "real" books.

I like the quick reads to give you a taster of a 'new' author. This one follows the search for an assisted suicide company. I quite enjoyed the style and will look out for full length novels by this author.

The book was okay. I found it difficult to understand what was going on during the first half of the book! The ending was a bit dissappinting too :( but it was alright,
