This book wasn't particularly well-written, yet it had me hooked from the very beginning. The story had so many unrealistic twists and turns that it really should have been a flop, yet I was completely unable to put it down. Some of the characters were flawless, others formulaic but engaging. This book really should not have been as fun and funny as it was, but despite it's faults, it turned out to be an engrossing and enjoyable read — and that speaks to the skill of the author. ( )
