Interesting, if not always captivating.

It all felt too careful, too carefully colored within the lines to have much real passion.

Tedious and slow going.
A pleasant, easy read, but likely to leave little lasting impact.

A collection for fans, not casual readers.
Fun and light before it bogs down in its indecision.
