My opinion of this story is that it took a long time to really get into the story. It is boring at the beginning as the plot unfolds, but once you learn more about the characters and see some of the action, it gets really interesting. There is also a lot of action in this book, but it isn't gory, which is good because most "action books" feature blood and death, while this book just has a few fist-fights and a lot of debating/arguing. When the main character realizes what his "job" is, the book is a lot more interesting. If you stay with the book though, it has a really good ending and plot twist.
