I'd have to give it a 3.5 out of 5.

A quick run down of the book.

It's about a person who traps monsters for a living; with his origami gnome side kick. His life sucks and he hates it all, until he's called to the scene of a yeti attack at a uni-mart. He meets up with a young lady stocking the shelves in this uni-mart, saves her life and says adue!

Or at least he tries to...

He ends up finding himself unwittingly enthralled with this young lady in a grand scheme that involves them both! What happens to them? Well you'll have to read the book to find out!

It was a good read but there were some things that were lacking from it. The book felt (ver very very loosely) like it was taking cue's from ghostbusters.

The beginning of the book got off to an interesting start, the middle slowed down a bit and felt disjointed, however; the ending was enthralling and enjoyable.

Over all it was an enjoyable read and I'd recommend it!
