Thank you and I agree with your comments. :)

Very good review. I loved the way you gave details about the story without giving it all away. It gives just enough interest to the book for someone to want to read it, without giving the reader a sense of how the book will end.

Yes, I'll agree this is a great review. It is why I purchased the book. However, I was disappointed. I had to make myself finish the book, hoping it would get better. I thought the story was a bit shallow and a bit predictable. This book didn't leave me hurrying to turn the next page. And who was Mike talking to? I thought he might turn out to be a crazy person.

You were?? I am sorry to hear it. I really enjoyed the book though the pace was a bit slow (as I mentioned in the review). Also, I don't think the story was shallow or predictable. Well, tastes differ.
