I can’t say exactly what it was that made me enjoy this book so much. The writing was fluid and the story interesting and, even though the characters were a little cheesy and predictable, the idea works so well and is such a quick, breathtakingly enjoyable story that you don’t mind it. I’ll have to consider reading more Harding.
