Not bad, but not great, either. Pandora is a bit too naive for her own good, and the book is really predictable, but it's a mostly pleasant read. I say mostly pleasant, because Pandora's dialogue was AGONIZING to read, not in a George Lucas Phantom Menace way (stilted and awkward), but in a poorly edited way. Pandora's sentences are all broken up with M dashes!! I coildn't tell if that meant she stuttered or just paused for breathe incessantly (too tight corset, perhaps?). It was so annoying I almost stopped reading.
