I only bought this book because the author and I share the same name, and I thought it would be cool to have it on my bookshelf. I know that's a little silly, but what can you do. Anyway, I wasn't even sure I would read it, because the storyline didn't immediately grab my interest. I couldn't decide which book to read one afternoon, so I thought I'd give my name twin a chance, and I wasn't let down. While the story itself still isn't completely up my alley, I didn't mind living in that world for a couple of hours. The writing wasn't bad and I quite enjoyed some of the characters.
