Trouble is a Friend of Mine
By Stephanie Tromly
This book started off so exciting, but gradually got worse as it progressed. The first 100 pages had me hooked, but after that it got pretty dry until around page 250. It just got confusing because I had no idea where the story was going, especially after the beginning.
Character-wise, I loved it. I loved Digby, even though he was such an ass sometimes that I’d probably punch him. I shipped him with Zoe so much and am in desperate need of a sequel, just so I can see if they ever actually happen (PLEASE).
I think the reason that some people didn’t like this book was because Digby was a character. By this I mean, he was so unrealistic and frankly, at times, stupid (he won’t take his medications) but he’s not meant to be a real person. It is fantasies and people like this that make me love reading so much. Not everything needs to be realistic or probable. He’s very similar to BBC’s Sherlock.
In the end, I would recommend this book if you’re looking for a book with interesting characters.
