I am so surprised that some of you are finding it a slow read. I loved this book. As far as her descriptions...to me that is a sign of a good writer, quickie paragraphs that don't include details make me think of children's books (Percy Jackson comes to mind) and chic lit (Jennifer Weiner et al). You definitely have to be patient to get the answers, but I just thought it was a really well written book and it pulled me into the story very well.
