I put off buying this book on several occasions because of the readers reviews and finally relented after reading the writer recommendation for the th..Show More »ird time. I will admit that if you are an action film type and prefer everyone to state their intention in less than 5 words using no more than two syllables per word, then you will hate this book. If however you actually like reading books, then you will appreciate the authors efforts to paint the scene and express her thoughts and feelings. Although I feel 5 stars is too generous, I wanted to express how strongly I disagree with the other reviews. I am an avid book reader (both normal and audio) and thoroughly enjoyed the book. I strongly recommend it and upon completion immediately bought the follow up book Sliver of Truth.
