Review: Occasionally, a book lives up to the hype. I'm not completely sure that this one does, but it comes close. I can certainly see where all the hype comes from. The characters (for the most part) are well-drawn and realistic, the plot is compelling, the tension believable, and the premise interesting. So, I definitely enjoyed this book, but I'm not sure it deserves all the buzz. I can't quite put my finger on why.
