I bought this book because the art is amazing, but now that I begun reading it, the story is actually gripping! But the best thing about this book is the design art and the gifts. Every illustration is related to what Cathy is writing in her journal. And the gifts are all clues to solving what is the nature of Victor.

When you begin reading you just have to know everything that will happen. What is great about the book is that it is fast paced and you can finish it in one sitting, and it is very exciting. You just have to know what Victor and the paper man and Tsao are. That was a great first book, though Cathy and Victor are not your average heroes, they are not heroic, they are very flawed but very human.

At the end you see Emma telling Cathy at her 18th birthday that the police will come questioning her now that Victor and Lu have fled, Cathy asked her what should she do, Emma said print out all your diary with every single evidence you've collected and show them everything, otherwise they won't believe anything.

I think they won't buy it even with everything inside the diary, they might think it's a young girl's fantasy.

Anyway the war of the immortals has just begun, all in order to stop death and time.

Can't wait to read book 2: Cathy's Key! ( )

The concept of this book... calling numbers, investigating websites and utilizing the evidence packet enclosed, is fantastic. The story, the mystery, the characters and the writing were terrible. The best thing about this book was the artwork. I was impressed with the amount of effort that went into the little details surrounding the story. I just wish the writing had been even slightly close to the artworks level. I am hoping the concept of this book catches on and I hear about an author who can pull it off... and make it interesting.

Interesting format with a pocket of "evidence" in the front for readers to look through. BUT, the format made it hard to hold the book, and the "evidence" wasn't necessary to the plot's outcome. A fast read nonetheless. ( )

"Things weren't so peachy in Cathy's life before Victor broke up with her. Her father died unexpectedly, she's failing school, and her best friend is mad at her. But now things have suddenly gone from bad to very, very, very, bad. Take Victor, for instance. Sure he looks like he's around Cathy's age, or at least young enough not to make her mother freak out, but what if he's older than he appears? Like maybe 200 years older. And what does the death of Victor's co-worker, the strange mark that appeared on Cathy's arm, and the surreal behavior of several Chinese elders have to do with it? Through Cathy's unique and irresistible voice-and lots of proof in the form of letters, photographs, date book entries, telephone numbers readers can call, websites they can access, as well as secrets only a careful reader will be able to decipher-readers will enter a strange and fascinating world where things often aren't how they appear."--Publisher's website.… (more)
