Finished: January 8th, 2011
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
I will say that I really enjoyed this book. I never would’ve picked it up had it not have been for my book club (as my friend Erin mentions in her blog: book club = awesome.) It really does set you up with books you’d never find otherwise.
Okay, back to the book. I found this story to be really intriguing and it really captured my attention. Some of my friends felt that the beginning moved slow but I actually preferred the beginning to the last 1/4 of the story. I felt that Leroy really built up her story in the first 45 chapters only to end it abruptly in the last 10.
Things I loved: the setting, Adam, the thrill, Lavinia.
Things I didn’t love so much: Sylvie (!), Grace (!), the last ten chapters.
All in all, I would recommend this book. It was a quick read and kept my attention.
