Gilda Interesting history and a fairly decent plot. However, one of the major themes in the novel was not disclosed in the brief synopsis located at the back of the book cover. It simply isn't fair to any potential reader to "sneak"major themes in a novel. A major theme with explicit sexual scenes should be noted. I think most readers prefer to be an informed potential buyer. I personally find hidden agendas offensive.
Patricia Nichols I have and did not like it at all. If they were up front with the content, I would not have bought it. When they describe the book, be honest about the contents.
Fiana Natanova I'm reading it now, better to say I'm listening to the Audio version of the book. I enjoy it, even some parts of the story very cruel and emotionally hard to listen
Caitlynn I read it as soon as I came out as a Target Club Pick. Wonderful book, kept me up late wanting to read more.
Cheryl I thought the book was fantastic. I kept falling asleep the night I finished it because I had to finish it. I even had to read the research info at the end, I was so captivated.
Tatyana Thomas Yes I have! It is one of my favorite books now actually. I sat down and read the book straight through in one sitting. It was fantastic!
Lisa Whitaker Absolutely wonderful, involving book. I didn't want it to end.
Megan's Picks For Today Blog No i haven't but i want to read it.
Marcie Johnson Yes I have and I loved it. Thought it was incredible.
