Great book!!! BUT........ The book is so heavy and big, with a paperback it is very difficult to keep it in good shape. I rented it but the cover tore after I did everything I could to prevent this and Barnes and Nobles wants me to pay them the buy out fee. Sooo not a good book to rent unless there is a hardback out there somewhere. GOOD LUCK!
