To avoid spoilers, all I will say about the content is that it is a very compelling story told by a writer with a very engaging style. The combination short chapters and engaging style makes an ideal book to travel with. You can read it until your flight is called and then easily pick the story up again without losing track of the narrative. The story is intriguing enough to hold your attention for hours, enough to make it through any layover. The physical size of the book makes it fit easily into the pocket of any carryon or airline seat, making it a great book to travel with.
