Well this had a lot of hype. Everyone raved about it. I thought it was a bit dull, and the characters were either silly or just unrealistic. Published posthumously (he had a heart attack in 2005) and amazingly, Wikipedia says he was second best selling author of 2008! Read this in NZ March 2010, mostly during wedding preparations, which might explain lack of focus.
