    I was cheeted by Cheet

    Thank God I only purchased the book for $7. I have never read a book about 5 lovers that was so boring in my life. The only reason I keep reading, was waiting for something to actually happen. The ending was a big let down, I recommend saving your money. I wish I did.

    I have to admit, Cheet was not one of my favorite books. It is one of those books where you keep waiting for something to happen (which is pretty much the only reason I finished it). The main character, Katherine, is a cab driver in London. She has 5 lovers (seems like an interesting premise doesn't it?) and a color coded cell phone for each lover (I can barely keep track of one cell phone, much less 5!). Actually, she gains a 6th lover during the course of the book, but he never gets his own cell phone. To me, all the characters seemed pretty whiny and needy. There was great potential for humor (I mean, come on, 6 different lovers?), but either I didn't get it, or there was none to be found. Each lover fell into a category (cute lesbian; handsome, young, black buck - probably gay; handsome, young, white buck - in trouble with the law; family man; and finally, scarred, troubled musician). The additional lover would fall into the 'mystery man' category as we don't know much about him until the end of the book. Not only are none of these people particularly interesting, but all they seem to do is whine to Katherine about their sad lives, how little they see her, or how much they need (fill in the blank). That said, Katherine really isn't that interesting either. She seems to be sleeping with all these people to fullfill some deep seated psychological need, possibly her difficulties relating to her father, but it's hard to tell. In summary, my feeling is that this book had a lot of potential and didn't live up to it. I thought the book would be funny, but there weren't many amusing moments that I found. I suppose it's possible that I missed the point and Cheet was never supposed to be funny, but it could have at least been interesting.
