review 1: This should be a no-brainer easy summer read type of book, and it's not that it is bad, I am sure many would enjoy it, it is just that it is one of those books where it is taking forever for anything interesting to actually happen and just when something starts to happen, the main character - in what I suspect is the author's attempt to tease or keep the suspense up - decides to do something really dumb like pick out her outfit for the next day or something. So even though a book like this I should have been done with in less than a day, I am finding it impossible to read more than a few pages a night because the lead character is so annoyingly dumb.

Baring for being overlong and a few parts that didn't need to be in there a surprisingly good read.
Not my usual sort of read...surprisingly enjoyable, finished in two nights.
Interesting read. Makes me want to read 'Mist Over Pendle' again.
