THE SLEEPOVER ARTIST sounded like an interesting premise and I wanted to like the novel because I liked the author's writing style, but it was a snoozer and I just couldn't finish. I made it about 3/4 through and decided I had wasted enough of my precious reading time. It was time to move on to something else.

THE SLEEPOVER ARTIST is told in several different short stories and each one may have an interesting plot here and there, but as a novel, it didn't seem to work. The stories weren't very cohesive for me. Just as I got interested (a little) in one plotline, the next chapter would jump several years later or several years earlier. It made me appreciate the characters less as I tried to figure out how everything fit together to tell me a story about Alex, the main character.

After reading 3/4 of the book, I found that I really didn't know much about Alex. Worse, I didn't care what happened to him or any of the characters in the "novel," so I gave up. Therefore, sadly, I can't recommend this book, but I hope the author matures in his plotlines for future novels

I found this book to be a little trite and cliche- but all in all it flows well and has some redeemable valuable as a peice of fiction. The narrator is funny and captavating and the story is enjoyable. It's one of those books that you won't be disappointed if you read it- but if you don't you'll surely survive in this world!
