I was impressed with the quality of this book. The story is told in a series of letters, along with newspaper clippings and a few illustrations (done by one of the main characters, of course). While this is a format that could easily come across as cheesy or feel forced, this book was very well executed. The letters all made a certain amount of sense (nothing overly forced to fit the narration's conventions), but were also written with pleny of witt and humor. I really enjoyed the punny names - real estate agent Anita Sale and lawyer E. Gadds, for example. Best off all, there was a sort of moralistic message thrown in at the end of the book - and it didn't feal at all didactic. It flowed from the plot and with the style of writing and it just made sense.

Definitely a quick and impressibly clever read.
