    I had read about one of the characters in this book while reading a magazine and decided to look on Amazon(I can always find what I want on here!) and found this book. The stories are amazing and intriguing, a good book if you like the unusual.

    Its OK, does not go into any depth, but a fair read overall. It gives one ideas, to take forward for sure.
