This book was a little slow to start out, but as I got in to it I couldn't put it down. I loved the plot and I wish the author would write a sequel because
it was an amazing book.

This book had a solid plot and a great concept, but there were many things I disliked about it. The beginning started off rather slow and very, if I dare say, boring. This is definitely not the best book I've read, but it isn't the worst I've read either. I found it hard to read sometimes, because the pace was not that good. I really liked the characters, specifically the "chubby" guy- I forgot his name. I thought it had some funny parts, and some intriguing moments, but other than that, this book was not what I thought it'd be like. The ending had to be the best part for me.

I really liked the concept of this book, but there were many things I would have changed if I were the author. Great start though - there aren't many books out there with the theme of subliminal messages.

Good book....ending is kind of unsatisfying and frustrating but I can't imagine it being any other way. From a guy's perspective...don't be shocked by what goes on in his mind.
I liked it. I don't get the cover though...
