Decent caracters that could have been more fully developed and a really compelling story line made this an enjoyable book. However, the ending was so abrupt it left me wondering if the writer just lost the steam to come up with a better ending. The caracters had more courage than the writer.
Great performance by Barry--lilting voice but not sing-song. Didn't grate on my nerves. Story was terrific with a bit of a twist. Characters well drawn and sympathetic (even Cal!) I'll look for my by the author and the reader!
Barry has created an interesting scenario, interesting characters and a most interesting setting. But the book feels repetitive and too long. A good editor is a great blessing!
Terribly boring, I don't understand how people like it. I thought the lace reading idea could be quiet creative but is not exploited at all.Not interesting twists, flat characters; if you need to be capture by a book in order to keep reading it, SKIP THIS ONE
I had hoped to be entertained by this book, but found it to be tedious, and gave up about half-way through. The plot and the characters were thin and uninteresting. Two thumbs down.
