Read in April, 2008

This was one of those books that was a fun quick read. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Just don't get hopes up for something that is far to "literary." That being said, I'm glad I pulled my head out of my own far to self important ass in order to read this mass maket fiction book. Because of it I was introduced to one of the most compeling characters I've read in a long time, Agent Pendergast. This character alone is worth the price of admission, and I'm intrested in reading more of him in the subsequent books of the series. Though I hope those concentrate more on his story line. I guess this goes to show that sometimes I need to get off my creative writing major high horse and walk among the mass populaion. It stings, but it's a good lesson to learn that I can still, and should be schooled when it comes to certain parts of the lit world. Sean and Agent Pentergast, thanks for being my teachers.

Lilly Anne There are nine other books in the series - all very good ones, and most of them revolve around Pendergast.
