it was ok
bookshelves: airport-n-grocery-store-lit
Read from December 08 to 15, 2011

The plot is your standard grocery-store/airport lit kind of stuff. Keeps your attention, but not much depth. There were several places where the translation struggled (particularly glaringly absent but necessary prepositions) and some typos that were flat-out distracting - either a weak editing job, a non-native translator or both. I wasn't much taken by any of the characters and wasn't all that impressed with the writing, but it held my attention on commutes, so it served its purpose.
