did not like it
bookshelves: romance
Read in January, 2007

This is another of those books that everybody seems to like except me. I think the main problem is that I found the main character - a thinly veiled author avatar - completely unsympathetic and ofter quite infuriating in his arrogant and clumsy handling of a foreign culture and others' feelings. It almost felt as if this was a 'villain protagonist' book sometimes.
