Good story but full of 'that's impossible' moments. Most annoying is the constant change in font size, one paragraph or page is very small then it enlarges, goes medium or small-really distracting!

Although not very suspenseful, a very fun book to read. It's a 350 page book and I figured out the ending at about page 200, but still kept reading to see if I was right. Basically it's a human experiment story with a heroine whom you want to slap silly because of some of the things she does, and a villain who is pretty obvious. Good vacation reading.

This book was a free download. It was enjoyable to read. It kept my interest. The heroine acts somewhat stupidly in a number of situations which I found a bit irritating. Overall, the book was good.

At first I had some trouble getting into this book. But as I read on I started to figure out some things. I read the previous reviews, someone mention around page 200 it starts getting interesting. They weren't lying.

This book would have been a great read if every word that dealt with the main character was edited out. As a female I was "GREATLY" insulted by the stupidity of the main character. I know that every female character isn't Angelina Jolie "Mrs. Smith". But Mr. Hoover could have given Morgan at least 2 brain cells to rub together. Even as a free book it is a waste of your time that you can't get back.

What drew me to read was the lure of Maya culture mixed with a modern day plot. It turns out, while that element is there it's not the main plot. While I found this was a page turner, it was one of those books where I could not suspend my belief. I also do not like books written in first person.

This story was definitely unique. The ending was a tad bit cheesy, but not unbareable. If you are looking for something with a unusual plot,check this one out.

Generally speaking, I am usually quite fond of an author writing from the opposite sex point-of-view. Generally. It was painfully obvious to me that Thomas Hoover really doesn't have much experience with the fairer sex, or how they think. Sadly, that wasn't the only issue with this read. While I believe the story line is quite intriguing (could be a great movie), it just didn't work out. I read this book until the bitter, pitiful end. Hoping that something would shift, and it would become a good read. That never happened. The characters are stiff, dialogue is elementary, too many elements for 1 book.......and just plain poorly written. Don't bother. Even for a "free" book.

I can't tell you whether this is a good read or not because the editing is AWFUL! In the first few pages I've experienced 3 font sizes ranging from "teeny-weeny" to "holy moly that's huge". It is distracting and annoying... and I just don't want to finish this. Who does this editing, anyway?

Albeit, I am only on page 432 of 700+ of this book, I have come to realize whay this book is more than 700 pages long.... the main character is not only predictably inane, but also inexplicatably brave. Would you believe in a character who, one pages ago didn't see an obvious trap and wondered about it for a endlessly boring chapter, Then realizes with enough time to avoid it, but decides to fall into it as the best way to get where she wants to be, but wait... then she is surprised when the trap is finally laid. And is heartbroken, then resolved that this is again a good way to complete her goal and too brave to believe on completing her mission. Does it sound like I am rambling? So does this book. Idon't know if I have the patience to finish the last 300 pages since I feel like I already know the ending before the halfway mark.

This book needs some master editing, it could be written in 300 pages. In many places it just goes on and on about her hair, her boyfriend etc. By the way for you guys... this is a girlie book, I think Thomas Hoover is a women writing under a mans name.I read another book by the same girl er guy and it was the same thing.... no more... oh wait I see the publisher is hoover, so it's self published no wonder it got in print

Read a billion pages for a zero suspense ending in addition to tertible writing.

A great example of really awful writing. My only excuse for making it through to the end of the book is being sick and not feeling up to doing anything else. MamaBearJB

700 pages of indescriminant font changes? Sorry, too much of a distraction. If the authors and publishers don't care enough to edit then I don't need to take the time to read it.

Changing fonts/font sizes really irritating. Lots of time spent on build up and never goes back to close the loop. Heroine is neurotic and spacey. Just not worth the time.

The heroine is pretty stupid and impulsive. This is just a so-so book.

Like a bad 'B-movie'...poorly written and bad acting

The premise for the plot is great. But the implementation is a problem. The writing is uneven, and the font changes on every page. That's not really a problem, though, as it is only a distraction. The plot starts out well, but the protagonist seems to be a moron. The plot goes from interesting to ludicrious. Her internal dialogue is inane as she struggles with what to do- and then chooses the stupid route. No woman, particularly a successful documentary producer who is a world traveler like this character is supposed to be, would choose the routes she's taken. I struggled through the book, because I did want to see the resolution. But this book is worth precisely what it cost me- nothing.

I loved how this book was twisted all the way through. It kept me on my toes and I couldnt put the book down!

Weird...did I say weird The author must have been on the same stuff the doctor injected the book's characters with. Complete waste of time.

The font changes every few paragraphs. Very distracting. Stopped reading because of it.
