Book:Spies and Prejudice
So Berry might be a little hard to get used to I found my self really liking her the more I read. And though the book has a little bit of a rough start its gets much better and really comes in to its own the more you read. I found my self getting really in to it. It made me think of some of the crime shows on TV like castle or NCIS a little bit. And as a big fan of those kind of shows reading a book that felt similar was fun.
Something that I found very interesting is that this along with a lot of other books movies and TV shows seem to be on this story kick about the main character solving their parents death. And I was kinda shocked by it in this book. I really did like the book and the story but for me that whole storyline is getting pretty old pretty quick. And one tiny silly thing (that I just have to point out is) the problem with is the whole homeschooling thing. Unless you live under a rock most homeschool kids do just fine when they go to school. Being homeschooled does not mean that you are a friendless idiot like so many people believe.I understand it in this book but really writers you ned wise up.
And then somewhere after that the book went a little over the top making it a little hard to believe. Its more of a humor book than a spy book to be honest. But I liked it. A lot. Its a fun read. If you are looking for a real your not going to find it here. This is just a nice fun read. And in a lot of ways that is really refreshing. THis book did not try to be something it was not.
And Some times with reading all of these books its nice just to read something light and fun and get a good kick out of it. which is what this was. And taking it for what it was it was good and I think that people who are a fan of spy humor will really like this.And fine as refreshing as I did.

I was given a copy of the book by the publisher. This did not in anyway effect my review or thoughts on the book.
