I just bought the book. I've read the first couple pages, but that's it so far. I'm currently reading another book and want to finish that one first. What about you?

Well, I haven't purchased the book yet but I read the sample on Amazon.😊

I have finished the book! Once you start getting into it, the book is really hard to put down! Happy reading! :techie-studyingbrown:

I couldn't put this book down. It was fascinating on many levels.

I couldn't put it down either. It was a very quick little book and very enjoyable.

I just finished reading the book. I loved it. As everyone has mentioned, it is extremely difficult to put down. I even found myself dreaming about the story.

I haven't started it yet. I didn't think it would really be my thing but after seeing what other people have said about it I have a feeling I might be pleasantly surprised. I have a couple other books to finish before I can get around to it, though!

I've read the first chapter. I seem to be at odds with many others. I find so many cliches that it's annoying. For example, the beautiful, innocent blonde with "nordic" looks that has sex with the main character right off. So far I'm a bit disappointed.

I have not started yet. I read the OBC review and I was intrigued but I don't think this book is really up my alley.

I haven't yet started the book, but I can't wait to! I have a very long list of books to read; right now I'm reading On The Road by Jack Kerouac and The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. This book looks very interesting and unique - something really out of my comfort zone! I am going to try and put it higher to my 'to be read' list

Finally got around to starting the book now. I'm only a chapter in but I like the style of writing so I expect to get through this quickly if it hooks me in!

I have just finished it. I agree with Mollymae
cliches that it's annoying. For example, the beautiful, innocent blonde with "nordic" looks that has sex with the main character right off. So far I'm a bit disappointed.

but ....
Once we get past the huge problems I have with Erika, the book is fascinating in crossing so many genre. I posted a review on Amazon with the conclusion that I would have given it 5 stars except for the very trite ending.
