Every once in a while, I start reading a book that I become addicted to. Every spare moment I have is spent on reading the book. This happened with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and it happened with this book. I remember mistakenly thinking I'd left it at work and genuinely freaked out until I saw that I'd brought it home and literally sighed in relief.I'm so-so with detective stories, but this one is so unusual, so FANTASTIC that I can't imagine anyone wouldn't like it. Sure, there are odd moments, but Huge is an odd little guy with a strange life. Deal with it, and read this book.
