As the back cover says, there is a certain voyeristic appeal in reading someone's private journal. This book is no exception. Presented as a cross between a journal and a scrapbook, the story unfolds bit by bit. The main plot of the book is never presented overtly, but rather implied and hinted at by the many emails and journal entries. Still and all, if I have any complaint it is that the plot seemed rather transparent. Because I went into the book knowing that the narrator would die mysteriously, I became hyper-aware of certain cues and the timing of plot points. This does not mean that the book was not enjoyable, however, merely that it was a very quick read.
