Thanks for the escape!

Disappointing

Not as good as expected, esp compared against Agnes & the Hitman, and even older stories. This seems to have a very slow start and not as zippy a dialogue as extected. The story did build and overall was satisfactory.

    Unfortunate

    I read half of this book and finally just put it down because it got so bad. I knew it was going to be strange when I picked it up, and surprisingly I was enjoying it's silliness. But the characters, especially the love interests, were really flat. Elric was the only interesting one, and he lost me too along the way. It's very rare for me to just put a book down but this was one of them. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. I enjoyed Crusie's books when she wrote them by herself. I wish she would go back to that.

    Hmmm

    It's interesting, because, starting from the beginning, it is such a horribly confusing book where absolutely nothing is explained clearly. And when the perfect moment arises to do something about the total ambiguity, instead there becomes this completely unnecessary, graphic moment of raunchy passion that spans a good thirty pages. I admit it's a fast read, and a great book to use as a distraction between otherwise more original and enduring works of literature, but overall, I'm not quite sure what to actually think about the lack of plot and the sexual theme. The only thing going for it is that somehow, inexplicably, it's hard to put down. Bravo.
