I just requested it from my library...I'm #19 on the hold list. :-( I'll look forward to your review, though. It does sound interesting.

The excitement I felt on reading your post drained away when I read the excerpt in the NPR article. I’m not a good book reviewer, so I can’t entirely put my finger on what I didn’t like about the style, but something about it grated on me: a high telling-to-showing ratio, and a tone of pop vulgarity in the narrative voice, to name a couple of things. An egregious factual error didn’t help, either.

I will therefore be very interested to read your review. Is the story compelling enough to make me forget or ignore the style?

I've read it, ordered it for our library, and can't wait for it to get here. I'm looking forward to your review, but I really liked this book and have already told people to look for it when it comes out.
