- Style- Miss Carters voice is impeccable. Not only that, but since she chose third person omniscient, she could use her own voice without worrying if it came across as well as one of the characters. And boy oh boy is she clever. I found myself smiling almost the entire way through the book. Which must be why my cheeks are sore this morning:)
- Action- this book is full of high stakes action and movement. They go from New York, to Paris, to Italy, to London...and a few other sexy places. There is never a dull moment.
- Intelligence- this book is smart. Like caviar and Monet smart. I feel like a got a mini-education on art appreciation in the two days it took me to sprint through this one. And history too. Something about those Nazi's always makes me perk up--their range of their evil is widespread.
- Character- I always "got" Kat the protag. She was clever and real, sweet and lost, beautiful and bad-A, all at the same time. She was fully dimensional and I loved spending time with her. She never made any decisions that I couldn't forgive her for. Even when I didn't understand what she was doing, I trusted her, and she never let me down. She was genius. And I realized that's how I like my protags: vulnerable but fully capable of amazing.
- Supporting Characters- she has this best friend who I am totally going to miss being around. I felt like he was my young, billionaire friend that could do whatever he wanted for me. The sexual tension between them didn't hurt the book at all either. Then there was this cousin Gabrielle that she didn't really get along with--I loved their banter. And a whole crew of other cast members that all gave life to the story.
- Random stuff- she had short chapters, which I love because I feel like I can breath. Also, the book felt like a really quick read. I dont know how many words it was, or even how many pages since my e-version was different that a book, but two sittings was all it took. I love that. I get annoyed when things seem to unnaturally stretch out. And last, I loved her cover art. It's so beautiful and mischievous...just like the book. Why did it take me this long to read it?
Have you read this one--and if so, what did you like? Any other book that you read recently that you adored?
