In the beginning, I didn't believe that I would like the main character. Her job isn't exactly something that I can identify with and I feared that such an emotionally detached person would be off putting.
Boy was I wrong. The supporting cast of characters are a rainbow in her otherwise black and white world. Within the story you see the protagonist begin to allow others to color her outlook while still remaining as strong and unique character.
The comedy is a little unexpected at first, but you quickly learn to expect unexpected antics from some of the supporting characters. I often found myself laughing out loud and I cannot wait to read every book in the series. It is a blessed break from reality, but is set in a location that is easy to imagine.
