It's a good read and is well written. Focussing around one day a year to tell the story keeps it fast paced and prevents it from becoming too much like one of those family sagas my mother always used to read. However, it is a predictable (maybe there just aren't that many ways of telling a 'boy meets girl' story any more) and that the writer ran out of a bit of steam at the end. The twist is not that twisty and quite honestly he could have more or less edited the last 30 or so pages out and it wouldn't have had a big impact on the tale.
It's a good book and a great holiday read; just not as great as the hype left me to believe.
