The unfortunate part of this attempt is that every part is underwhelming. The book they are writing together sounds horribly pedantic, while the narrative about them living together is filled with banal instructions on how to care for a blind person (Please don't leave stuff on the staircase!!!). The worst part comes at the inevitable twist, which emerges with all the excitement and surprise of paint drying.
After reading about Adair's novels I was excited to read more, but after reading this one, I will have a difficult time picking up another one.
