Once again I'm in the minority and just do not understand all the favorable reviews. If you are interested in lettering and fonts and signs then it is the book for you --there are pages and pages about this. The romance was awkward and unconvincing. The main characters were like cardboard figures moving through a boring story about signs. There was no chemistry and little humor to lighten the whole thing. Also, the style of writing -- long sentences and endless similes -- made the whole thing heavy work. Run don't walk away from this one.
