I really quite enjoyed this adventurous tale mixed with a small town story. I found it to be an inventive story with some exciting, if not humorous, twists on some old ideas. The wit practically oozes off the pages, and every character has a certain charm that rings with authenticity.
If I had any complaint about the story, it’s that it seemed, at times, to dwell on giving the back story on each and every character in the book. Stick with it, though, those back stories are relevant and necessary to the payoff at the end of the book. Moore has an excellent gift for building suspense and though the story wraps up quickly, it wraps up thoroughly.
It was an excellent read, and I’ll definitely be recommending it to my reading friends.
