I read the first two chapters of this aloud. I was like an audiobook, and yes, I had a listener. My friend was pushing me to read it aloud until the end. He said he didn’t really like it; he merely wanted to add it on GoodReads. Of course I didn’t give in. I need to use my voice for other purposes.

And I am not an audiobook.

So after he left, I found myself racing through the dozen of chapters. It’s not something that I would call brilliant, but it’s really fluid. And I have to give her credit for making me finish it within 24 hours, sleep and various chores included.

This book wouldn’t be something if I was so engaged, right?
