The rating I gave has nothing to do with the book content itself, it is due to the fact that the copy of the book I got was defective. I ordered this book on-line on January 19, 2010, and received it a week later. The book was however unreadable. First of all, I noticed at the inside back cover there was a date of January 19, 2010 on it, which made me think that B&N printed this book on the day after I placed the order, which is not a problem by me; however, the real problem is that every page has a few lines that are gibberish. For example, in the middle of a sentence, I would find words such as ehx4bj%ksnbcd8jye, and I have no idea what the real text should be. There are also a lot of words with no space between them. If B&N printed this book, it did really a poor job. I read about 10 pages and became frustrated trying to figure out what the true words should be in lieu of those gibberish codes. I returned it to a B&N store. They were very surprised when I showed them the book. They couldn't tell me what caused it, but were very gracious and apologetic.
It was a great story. This is one of my favorites.
