The Devil and Miss Prym - Amanda Hopkinson, Nick Caistor, Paulo Coelho The premise of the book seemed interesting. So many people have praised the book as an absolute must-read. My two cents? It's okay. Personally, if I'm going to read a book about the devil coming to town and the struggle between "good" and "evil" that occurs within each person, I'd much rather read [book: The Master and Margarita].

The narrative in The Devil and Miss Prym is a bit slow in the beginning, stumbling a bit at times. Things pick up in the middle and there's some interesting conversations between Chantal and the stranger. Then, before you know it, the end is quickly wrapped up and it's all done with. Almost as if the author wasn't quite sure how to construct the ending, and made do with this to finally finish the story.

It was entertaining, for the most part, and definitely a quick read.
