it was ok

I just never totally got into this one. It started with a bang - too strong in my opinion - I think I get that it was to pull you in, to jump straight to the point but it just took me too long to recover. The ending was pretty poor too, it got a little bit strange. The middle was ok, but never really gripping like I juts had to keep on reading, it was very easy to put down and pick up which was not what I expected the book to be.

Oh and heaven? Really, there is a little bit of a problem with the picture given, people are people, no matter how good they were, they still have bad days, still have their own hang ups and would not live such a nice little existance - otherwise why would earth not be the same? A few bad people aren't what makes most of us have a bad day.
