My problem with the book wasn't the approach--I absolutely relished the thought of diving into it. Just thought it was a great idea (although not original--see Hav or a bunch of others. I wouldn't say City of Saints was too far off from this concept, either). But the execution is mediocre. I kept trying to find ways to like the book, and couldn't. Theoretically, I'm the perfect reader for it, but...

I also thought while reading it that some parts of the book were better executed than others. In retrospect, however, I'm happy to have read it.


Just thought you'd like to know that this post piqued my interest and I plan on grabbing this book at next opportunity.
