    Take a trip

    I picked up this book tonight and flew through it. It was a very easy read with an interesting storyline. I would have to say my only complaint would be, I felt like the story wasn't totally resolved at the end. Overall the story was good and flowed well. I felt it was a very interesting read for more than one reason. I will leave it at that. Although before I go, take a chance and read this story by S. O'Connor.

    couldn't read

    It came to my nook with the writing to far to the right which cut off half the words making me guess what they were. The Untouchable is by far the better book.
