The Last Word  - Lisa Lutz

Simon and Shuster have graciously granted me an advanced readers copy of the last book in Lisa Lutz's Spellman series.  I started it last night.  First off, I have to say that the formating is HORRIBLE.  S & S always does the pdf versions and they end up with lots of extras in it.  The Spellman series has unique formatting, so it is challenging to try and read through it and get the story.  I am going slow.


But so far, it is typical Spellman's humor.  Will be sorry in a way to see this end, but I admire Lutz for finishing strong instead of evolving the books into a cliche.


Thanks to S&S for allowing me the opportunity!
