it was ok

Meh. I had high hopes for this book and I think the story is fun, but it really dragged and I stopped reading halfway through and just skimmed. This book is an excellent example of why book editors are necessary; a good editor could have cut 100 pages and had the same story and a better book.

Lisa Oh, rats. Sorry if I was the one that steered you wrong. It did drag a little in the middle, but since we read it a chapter-per-night, it didn't get to me.

Jessica Not your fault! This was our book club pick. But even if you did recommend it, you are not responsible for my taste :).
