This is not a complicated read. You can put the book down and come back to it a week later and not have forgotten any details, thus making the mystery of it all easy to follow. However - I did feel that some things were not explained enough and at other times details were dropped seemingly out of nowhere. The characters consistently make serious leaps of logic that seem unlikely.

Also, the ending of this book was a complete disappointment to me. I felt all the strings were tied up so happily that any moment the Muppets would appear and sing Kumbaya. Likely Mr. Melzer had a checklist of plot points and just went down it in order to finish the book off.

But if you want a brainless read, and are in to Superman mytholoogy, this is it.

This is one charming, romantic novel. It takes our our favorite characters down an inventive "what if" path, one that is at once believable and interesting. Light on sex and heavy on passion and arden desire, I could not put this one down!

Charming book. So well written that I slowed way down to savor every word. Better than the movie!
