it was ok
Recommended for: Illiterate people
Read in September, 2008

Something on the book "jacket" mentioned that the author is actually a graphic designer and that this is his first attempt at actually writing. That fact is painfully apparent.

Every paragraph feels like a high school descriptive writing assignment. Kidd's overuse of metaphors, in particular, is so distracting that I frequently lose track of the novel's action (if you can even call it that).

The jacket design is engaging and unique, but the same cannot be said of the story itself.

Amy I couldn't even finish this book I thought it was so awful. Now that I read your review I feel a little more justified since it came highly recommended from a friend!
