I really enjoyed the beginning of this book. it had me laughing so hard I woke my wife up in the middle of the night. For some reason the second half didn't strike me in the same way. Maybe it was because I was already looking forward to New books to read. Anyways, I really did enjoy reading this, and the situation herself into had me shaking my head in disbelief. This is a book you must read. No review can prepare you.

Samuel Proulx We seem to have had the same reaction to the end of this book. How long did it take you to read? I'm wondering if it's a pacing issue, or if the ending chapters really aren't as good.

Jordan Lahn It actually took me quite a while to finish this book. Got distracted with a lot of other stuff. But I did find that towards the end I was reminding myself to keep reading, rather than genuinely wanting to go back. it could be that early on I was shocked by her stories and wondering what would happen next, but by the end I expected shocking things to happen and wasn't surprised when they did.
