I've read about a dozen of the Dev Haskell series and this one was free - so I can't complain too much. However, as I've said before, you pretty much know how things are going to go - so there is never any suspense in these books. It's just a pleasant way to pass a couple of hours.
The one thing that does ALWAYS irritate me is that Dev has no discernible means of income and yet, in this book (as with others) he manages to hire a limo, pay for expensive dinners, send flowers etc. When you start to get fixated on something trivial like that it kind of distracts you from the story.
Perhaps one of my biggest bugbears though is that the book actually finished at around 65% of the Kindle file and then Mike always tacks promos for other books on the end.
On the one hand this is generous and encourages readers into trying more books. On the other hand, when I'm reading a book and I can see the pages ticking down, I kind of have an expectation of how long it's going to take met to finish. When I suddenly turn a page and it all wraps up it kind of feels wrong. That's maybe just one of my quirks....but finishing at 65% is quite a difference as other authors that promo normally only tag a single chapter on the end.
But it was a cold, frosty night and I was having trouble dropping off - this book helped (which may be a back handed compliment).
