My memory of the book is a little hazy now because I read it during summer and its at home but I am not...anyway like it?

I thought the idea of the book was quite unusual and interesting and pretty hard to guess the ending.

To be honest I did buy the book for the shiny cover, the fact that it was signed and had a dragon on the front...which was shiny so yeah I was very impressed that the inside lived up to the front cover.

I'm not very far through the book...only on page 160-something. It's pretty interesting, but isn't up to the main part of the book yet, well hopefully something happens!

But anyway, it's pretty good so far!

Yeah its quite slow and strange, at the beginning I had difficulty following the switches, kept getting annoyed but I slowly got hooked

I'm not sure I fully understood it to be honest, I thought the final result didn't seem to match what the build up suggested but that it was still very good. I think I was expecting something more evil, I probably read too many adult books.

Some people like to read them more than once, sign of a good/confusing book...

And I know that my copy is especially shiney, the dragon is made from holographic paper on the cover so I wouldn't be wanting to take it back again....shiney...mine!

Why do you think I bought it in the first place...hehehe Bonus that it turned out to be a good book, shiney dragon was more than enough.
