it was ok
bookshelves: humor, urban-fantasy
Read from April 06 to 10, 2011

The beginnign held promise, strong start but fizzled out and about 4 chapters in I lost interest, the middle was kind of meandering and slow, the ending was really good. Over all 2.5 because something just didn't click for me. Perhaps it's because I didn't feel very attached to the characters and only cared for Judy and even that only in the ending chapters - I would have liked her to be a little more clued in a little earlier perhaps. I think the book would have worked for me better had there not been so many repetitions - we're reminded about Monster's lousy character a lot, about Judy forgetting, over all a little too much of the same. Perhaps one less crypto attack, perhaps one less time Monster is selfish/grumpy/nasty, etc...
