Eh, I wanted to like this book more than I did because I REALLY like the idea of it, but somehow it never really caught me. It interested me enough that I read it straight though, but overall I found the writing style a little lacking and juvenile for my taste; there wasn't enough depth to the characters. So, you have a whole bunch of really interesting mini scenarios but none of them felt *rich* enough so the whole book ended feeling like a surface skim of what could really have been a great novel.

I do recommend it though, because the idea is great and it was an enjoyable, if quick, read. Be warned though: there are a handful of errors in the book of the homophone variety (i.e. "sail" instead of "sale" -- and that's not an actual one in the book, I don't think, but just the first example I thought of) that are jarring to the reading experience. Otherwise, I recommend this for light reading.
