you have to get past the first few chapters of this book before it gets interesting. once you do, you will not be disappointing. the main character to start is a little much but, as he interacts with others and becomes a little bit more human it is easier to like him and his some what heartless plans. the story is fun in that it makes fun of story plots in general but embrace them at the same time. I highly encourage finishing the book, it is worth it.
