Stealing Adda

I just finished Stealing Adda, loved it. Very well written, funny, and witty. The only thing I was a little confused about was after the book ended there was a Readers Guide... I didn't get that. This was a part that the author wrote some notes and then wrote an additional scene. I've never seen this in another book...

If you've read this book already, tell me, did that make any sense?

The Klutzy side of Adda was hilarious and relatable... unfortunately =). I also thought it was very interesting how the author wrote in the spiritual aspects of the book. Nothing was in your face. It was kind of an underlying topic. Something that was happening behind the scenes and would come out to give you a glimpse now and then. By the time I finished the book I knew the reason why the spiritual aspect seemed down played. This was a nice ficitional world, glad I took a the trip.
I don't want to ruin the book for anyone so I will just say that it was very good and you should order a copy. I look forward to reading Splitting Harriet soon.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it. You'll probably love Harriet even more!

The end part of the book is meant to be used as a reader's guide. The questions asked in the talk show interview are to be discussed as reader's questions. She just presented them in a different manner as opposed to giving a list of questions. Does that help explain it any, or did I leave you more confused?

Makes so much more sense. I need to go back and read that part again...
