Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book! I really enjoyed this book! I picked it up at a book fair a little while ago and didn't really know what to expect, but I quickly found myself obsessed with it. It's an easy-read that's full of suspense and plot twists. I highly recommend it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay... I expected this to be much better. The summary sounded much more interesting and I did want it to be interesting, I really did. I was shocked with the outcome. It ended up being a boring book that really didn't have a clear concept. There are a lot of good reviews on this one, and of course I expected it to be good, in fact, amazing. I was definitely disappointed with the slow moving plot and boring events. Mickey was... absurd you could say. He thought differently than most. I don't have much to say and I'm pretty speechless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shelter Shelter is an okay book. I had no trouble connecting to the lead character, Mickey Bolitar, but I didn't fully understand what the author was going for. I mean, yes, it's a good book. But I feel that it's lacking some sort of suspense. Some parts of it wasn't very realistic, and I couldn't get a picture of most of the scenes in my head. I also had trouble with the ending, and with all the different facts about Mickey and his father and the butterfly sign... anyway, it was hard to keep up with. Overall, a good book. But, I must say that i'm glad i borrowed it from the library rather then buying it at Chapters.
