This was an okay book. Nothing magnificent, nothing terrible. A fun read even if the main character is a bit of a mess. ( )

I wavered between 2 and 3 stars on this one, as every so often I wanted to slap myself around the face for reading it, but actually, taken on its own terms, it was pretty fun and a reasonable mystery ( )

A fun read based on the tv show Castle. I liked how the book was written as if Richard Castle had really written it with the dedication and such. The story was fast paced and suspenseful. ( )

I know what you're thinking, and yes, this book really exists. From the front cover to the back cover, the whole thing is "in character." Just a stunning amount of inside jokery.

Now, for the story itself, the characters are related to those of the show, but are not copy-cats. There is enough of a difference that you don't feel ripped off, and enough of a similarity that you constantly feel you have some sort of insider knowledge. Being a mystery novel, there's also lots of twists. None are as big as the surprise that this book isn't half bad!

It's a short book, quick read, and lots of fun. If you don't have a kindle, wait for the paperback. I don't think it's worth over $20. ( )
