read like a play, boo

(2 stars)

sad to say I gave up on this one. has the guts of a good story, but I was to distracted by the narration when referring to the stage or set or character movements, makes you snap out of it and ruins the feeling of being immersed n a book. if the play comes to a stage near me, I will definately go see it - as I said, the storyline sounds great. volunteers did a fine job.
