The premise of this book was somewhat far-fetched, and I could see how readers might lose interest at the beginning, especially if they picked it up because it was supposed to be a thriller, since most of the beginning is taken up with demonstrating how self-centered the main character, Eli is. Then, at the end of the book, it might frustrate readers, or, at least it frustrated me, a little bit that Eli suddenly shed his brattiness to use not only his acknowledged superior wits to free his family, but also his new-found compassion.

Those things said, I think that the idea of this book was interesting, and it was definitely entertaining. I borrowed the audio recording of it from the library to listen to in the car while commuting, and it definitely made me less reluctant to go to work! :)
