The book clocks in at about 227 pages, which would usually take me about a week to finish. I'm a slow reader, I've got toddlers in the house, and being mildly dyslexic makes casual reading something that requires a lot of attention.
I finished this book in less than a day.
I was hooked from the first page. Kirsty is a relatable, real character that I was rooting for all the way. The story moves along at a nice clip with humor and puns peppered throughout. It does have puns but they aren't over-done. There are times when the main character drags a bit in pity, but then she did die, so that's understandable.
There is a pleasant wit displayed among the wordplay and I look forward to the next in the series.
My Verdict: At $2.99 it's a steal. Buy and enjoy.
