Jane Jacque-

Was this book only worthy of 2 stars??? Should I skip it? I was going to read it next...

Jacquelyn hey
I wrote a little blurb about this book but I think I erased it by accident. Its really original and somewhat funny, but honestly he should not have attempted a "mystery" because it made no sense--even after finishing I wasnt clear who did it and why. And there were so many yiddish words that I couldnt follow half the sentences! Its like he came up with this amazing idea, and a unique style to go with it, but its all form and no "soul". Does that make sense? Read it and let me know what you think--I was also reading this while moving, starting new job, etc, so I probably didnt get into the flow as much as I normally would have.
