I remember reading this book like it was only yesterday...A couple of years ago, when I was still working for a publishing company, we had this out of town event, wherein we're going to ride a bus for about 5 hours to reach our destination, it's a beach resort, so all the time that we were traveling, this book helped me on those long stretches of boredom. The story of this book was really catchy. When we reached the resort I just can't stop reading it. All my friends were telling me to stop reading and go outside and enjoy the environment. But I can't help it. When I read, it's like, I'm dead to the world. It's really handy to have a book by your side wherever you are, if you have a book, all else can come and go as they please... Cheerz!
