    I was surprised by just how much of an enjoyable read this short novel was. Enjoyed the characters (although at times I wish I knew a bit more about them), and the plot was good. If I have any complaint with the book, it would be that each of the six storytellers tend to all write in the same style. For instance the lawyer writes the same as the girl who works in the diner. Giving each of the storytellers a different writing style would help the reader tell who is telling this chapter without even looking. This is a minor critique, and it does not take away from the overall story. If you're looking for a short, entertaining novel to read over the weekend, give Perfected Sinfulness a try. I enjoyed it and recommend it.
