I recommend this story to readers who are looking for some light, entertaining reading that is often funny and some love sick longing to balance it out. The story takes some unpredictable twists and turns that add to its mystique thought they do seem to come up out of nowhere.
Personally, I enjoyed the book. I liked the unique perspectives that the characters experienced in the book. The characters didn't seem to draw me as much as I usually like, but may be appropriate for the type of plot as the focus was more on the situations and the problems created as different forces clashed with each other.
Rhythm is painfully slow, though, and it is hard to care for a lead who is on the dimmer side of pale: the end result is a book annoyinly easy to put down.
I enjoyed the love story, and the true-to-life trials of a person new to a town and without a job. It rang true enough to engage my empathy, and mysterious enough to keep me reading.
