it was ok
bookshelves: psych-tv-show, humor

As all the other psych-books I read, this one can't reach the TV show either.
I liked how Rabkin wrote Lassiter.
What I didn't like about this book was:
- the final solution
- how he put really great characters in there for a few pages (what a waste)
- the way he writes a given situation in the very beginning of the chapter just to jump back in time to tell how that happened (he did it in several chapters and that just bad writing)

I really wish I could say something better about this book because I still love the TV show and the characters but I just didn't really like reading it.
