A bit disappointing considering the number of stars
on June 27, 2004
I read this book for two reasons, first it was favorably mentioned on someone's listmania list and two because it had a high star rating. Of course, it wasn't until after I finished the book that I realized that the star rating was based on only 8 reviews.
I found this book to be a fine read. Something you bring to the beach. Usually I bring to the beach either
a. a good who-done-it / lawyer type book (think Grisham, Patterson, or Scottline) or
b. something I would deem a chick book. A novel with interesting characters and a decently amusing plot where the main character is usually a woman I can relate to and a potential romance will most definitely be covered somewhere in the story.
This book falls under category b., the characters are easy to like and are interesting enough that you want to know what happens to them next, and there is a romance, but the overall plot I found to be somewhat boring making me wonder, "why I am still reading this". If you do read this book, it won't be a complete waste of time. You will like it enough, but there are just a lot of better choices out there for the beach.
