I really liked this book a lot! The subject matter of this book is betrayal... both of oneself, and of others. It is about the lives of actors, and the story of one actor who is outdone by another, and the 'theatre' of everyday life. It takes place mainly by the ocean, and that in itself makes the book rewarding if , like myself, you are a lover of water, especially the ocean!!! The ending of this book is nothing short of brilliant, in my opinion! I thought about this book, and about the ending, for many days to come after I had already finished reading it!! I would give this book 4 , or 5 stars!!
