Read in January, 2009

100 pages in, and I wasn't sure what the fuss was about, still waiting for the story to really get started--but the complex setup so far was interesting enough to merit reading a bit more, so I did.

200 pages in, and I was genuinely intrigued.

Somewhere around 300 pages in--I don't know exactly, because I was no longer paying much attention to such trivia as page numbers--I was coursing along with the adventure, having discovered exactly why this book received such rave reviews.

I blinked, and about 400 pages had disappeared into history, leaving a rollicking good story in their wake.

It takes time to develop rich characters, detailed settings, and convoluted schemes. I'm glad that David Balducci devoted this time to The Whole Truth, because the end result was pretty darned good.
