it was ok
Read in April, 2012

I liked the beginning of the book because I was looking for a nice fluffy read. I generally read books that are heavier and longer. The problem is that half way through the book I realized why I enjoy books with more depth. Rather than displaying the book's purpose through the plot and character descriptions, Lelord seemed to tell the purpose outright through Hector's components of love/heartache. It didn't help that I became very irritated when the character, Dr. Cormorant, said that Orangutans were monogamous. Orangutans are not monogamous; they are polygamous! Was anyone else annoyed by that or am I just being picky? All that being said, this could be a fun and easy read. It's just not my cup of tea.
