There were some good plot surprises, but I was disappointed that the crime Michael was going to investigate didn't occur until almost 40% into the book. The set up before that was interesting, but not in the way I expected. I expected less set up and more sleuthing.
I love books and books about books. So, I really was excited to read this one. I just didn't enjoy it as much as I anticipated. The writing is good. The characters are interesting. And once the action begins, it really gets interesting. It's just that there was such a wait before that.
I ended up giving this book 3 stars. It was good, but not great. I loved the sense of humor and the narrator, but I disliked the long wait until the action started. I would still give this book a read if you enjoy books about books. You might like it much more than I did. And I would still give other books in this series a chance as well.
