In the beginning, I rolled my eyes a bit. But I must admit I was hooked to this pulp novel after the first few chapters. The author might not be a Nobel laureate, but she can spin a story, and she makes the characters much more believable than the actors did. I didn't watch the pilot until after I read the book, but in my opinion the book is a lot better, and I was disappointed to realize most of Vincent's story (which I enjoyed as much as Catherine's) wasn't filmed at all. I think if I had seen the show first, I wouldn't have picked up half of what was going on, and I prefer the book to the show. All in all, I give it 3 stars.
