Have recently finished this book, but had to review my history before I could remember the title! This means the book is almost instantly forgettable. As for the story itself it is reasonable enough with twists and turns along the way to keep up ones interest. Other reviewers have alluded to the main characters superhuman abilities. This was a constant source of annoyance; as every time one of these incidents occurred I found myself having to reread half a page at least, as I had read the previous section without taking anything in from thinking about the absurdity of the incident.
Another thing which I found seriously annoying is the deliberate use of an incorrect adjective; there are many examples of these throughout the book, but the one which annoyed me the most was the use of the word splashed when the correct adjective would have been scattered. Splashed is used in connection with a liquid, broken glass is a solid! This may sound a bit picky, but I do like to read proper English.
