When I saw the cover and subject of this book, I felt I had read it before. As I read it, I knew I had read it before. I thought the book was good, but it wasn't my favorite NN book. The characters were somewhat bland to me. I didn't feel like I could "reach out and touch them", which is one of my favorite aspects of the greater chunk of NN authors I read. I would read this author again, but wouldn't seek his books out.
