really liked it
Read in January, 2009

Although this book started out really slow (Hamilton has a tendency of giving way too much background), the pace picks up and it turned out to be a good book. Hamilton manages to create some of the most self-absorbed characters I have ever seen. None of them are really appealing, but in the end they change (slightly). The only character who remains self-absorbed to a point where she is in no way likeable is Sue Rawson. I found it interesting that in the beginning, I thought that she would be the one character that I would grow to like, but as the book went on, I liked her even less.
