I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
This was a fun read. It was a good break from the more serious stuff I've been reading. The only thing I would have liked was more substance and to have the characters more fleshed out. Everything seemed really flat to me, so more depth would have been appreciated.
