it was ok
Read from February 05 to March 03, 2010

As my stars indicate, it was okay. I found the book in the laundry room of my building where some neighbors tend to leave things for people to take (they need to learn about bookcrossing.com). I picked it up because the title references a verb tense and I teach ESL and ... nevermind ... my brain works in mysterious ways.

Anyway, the book is a quick read and mildly entertaining. I appreciated all the NYC references and thought the characters were interesting and amusing. I just didn't feel compelled by the storyline. The protagonist is a former CIA employee who writes a TV series for a channel not unlike TBS or USA -- not really a network station, so perhaps the standards are a little lower. That's how I felt about this book. It is a story good enough for not-ready-for-primetime networks -- not bad, but not as intricate or solid as network shows.
