This is my first book I read from Mr. Nordan. He has a very descriptive writing and adds the character more realistic. Though the story seems dry at moments, I probably recommend to any one that drives for read a 'feeling' book. The book acclaims to be funny, but I guess I have a dry sense of humor. There were some funny parts but not that funny. I don't really want to spoil any parts of the story so that's pretty much all i can say.
