I have no idea why I picked up this book. The first book in this series wasn't very good, and this one isn't much better. Some points: -This book is just plain gross. (people who have read will know why) -When number 5 is doing a broadcast (pg 73), there are apparently tons of aliens. Wouldn't somebody notice this??? -Page 79- Manga reference!! -More references to modern stuff like 24. -I could just sit here all day and make a list of points. Just take my word for it, don't bother with this book unless you are a really big JP fan.
I think of this as sort of a British South Asian "Waiting to Exhale." Did I read that from the bookcover or did I make it up? But it really is kinda like that. Kinda pop, not too deep, but fun. It made me laugh out loud a few times, which is why I enjoyed it. Most books about "our" experiences are heavy or literary or depressing, which is not bad, but it just starts to get boring sometimes, until you get something like this to shake it up a bit. It was kind of refreshing to read something kind of mainstream but still full of recognizable experiences. The characters are... more than stereotypical, I would say...formulaic, which in a way is a nice change from the usual :)
