This book started out pretty slow but stick with it. Good story, kept our interest but some of the "adventures" are hard to believe and physically impossible. the pace picked up about a quarter of the way into the book and All inall we really enjoyed the story . I will definitely download another of Henry's books when we have another long trip to endure.
