Narration is bloody perfection!!

A bit sappy, but generally held my interest throughout.
I really enjoyed first 1/3 and last 1/3
Middle I found a little tedious
The narration is excellent.

Not as good as the Letter

I read the Letter and couldn't get enough. I bought this hoping for a similar style. The story was ok, but not as good. Not a waste of time, but not the greatest either.

A well versed story

First and foremost I enjoyed The Letter and because of this bought The Secret. A good read with an in depth knowledge of human behaviour.
I gathered the secret towards the middle of the book but another part of the story was a complete suprise.
