it was ok
Read in March, 2011

If I had been expecting a standard-issue romance novel, I would have given this a three, but since it was recommeded to me as "literary," I was very disappointed. This book was packaged and marketed wrong. As a romance novel it is slightly better, but it's pretty predictable and the characters are stock. As many others have noted, though, it's a clever premise and not too badly written.
