This is a good book, well written with characters that are very believable that you can sympathize with. Not Ann Frank, but not grossly far off. Other..Show More »s have written that politics and religion should have been left out of the book, but I think that these references certainly belong. One of the characters is expressing her opinion...isn't that normal? Don't people do that all of the time? As for the religious references...isn't that believable too? One of the characters uses the shade of religion to fleece the sheep of his congregation. What is the difference between that and television evangelist and others who continue to live the high life on the contributions of their congregations, contributions that they continue to elicit even now as the economy crumbles?
I like the overall story line of this book series and its concepts. That being said, this book wasn't was exciting as the 1st book, and I'm sorry to s..Show More »ay it the narrator was boring. I would still highly recommend this book series though :)
