Pages: 228

Not as action packed as the first two books, this book was more of a really getting to know the character, I would say.   ohn, one of my favorite character in the first two books turn into a totaly selfish jerk! Which kinda made me mad, but I got over. You see less of George which is a downer also. For a little bit Faithful becomes a annoying but she( or he, I can't remember) get over my the end of the book.
