Read from February 19 to 27, 2012

This book was recommended to me after shortly after I joined GoodReads by someone who thought it matched my tastes. I was very happy to have a chance to try a title that I had previously not heard of, and I am happy to review it, but was not impressed.

I felt that this book really lacked depth in both the story and the characters. It seems rather than taking the time to make you believe something about a character, the author just tells you explicitly what he wants you to know. At first I thought maybe I couldn't relate to the characters because they are wealthy and well-connected, but they just weren't well developed. They were shells of people placed in an overly dramatic plot line.

If you are looking for a quick read, or something you don't have to concentrate that hard on then I say go for it. If you are looking for quality writing and depth, I would pass on this one.
