This was a decent book. It read quickly, was easy to follow, and held my interest. However, it didn't "blow me away", and I wouldn't call it "stunning", as some of the reviews on the back would suggest. Also, I'd be lying if I said that the pretentious back-jacket "We don't want to tell you what happens in this book" blurb didn't rub me the wrong way before I even read page 1. A good choice, though, if you're looking for something quick to read, even if some of the things in the book might raise your "Hmm, I'm not sure that would really happen" hackles.
