It has been a long time since I have sat down with a book and been so immersed that hours passed away like minutes while I read. I grabbed this book from the library and started reading it about 8:30 Friday night. The next time I looked up it was 11:00. That happened each time I picked this up. I love it when I become that engrossed in a book!
And in some ways that shouldn't have happened. This certainly wasn't a great book. The critics panned it. Still, it hooked me from the beginning and carried me along with its magic.
