This book had a great plot, but I kept getting distracted by the bad writing... and I'll be the first to admit that I read a lot of mind candy/chick-lit garbage, so when I object to writing, I've really found some flaws.

That said- this book definitely had a great story. The characters were a little two-dimensional, and she told us who they were instead of letting us get to know them through their actions, but there was enough there to enjoy them when the writing didn't get in the way. Except her romantic male lead... he was as flat as something you'd find in a Harlequin novel.

If bad writing doesn't bother you, if you're a fan of Dan Brown... then you'll love this book since you won't want to gag everytime dialogue is used to deliver information. (Like I did.)
