Date Started: April 3, 2011. Around 9 PM in my room.

I was not supposed to read this one yet, but when I saw that the book is being discussed for the month of April in an online book group, I jumped in. Besides, I have nothing really good to do so I might as well make my time useful.

I raced through nine chapters. It’s almost a third of the book. And why am I in a hurry? I’ll be starting another book soon with a reading buddy. I haven’t read two books concurrently yet, so this might be my first time.

Anyway, the book looks promising. I haven’t come across the boring parts yet, of which I was warned about. I don’t think it’s boring. On the contrary, I think it’s as gripping as the blurbs say.
