Reader's Reviews


Good, but not as good as the others. It does not tell you that fortune telling is a good thing, and we do not actually here the woman fortune telling in the book.

The UK cover features a crystal ball; in the book, a woman claims to be able to tell fortunes, but she later says she cannot, and that she does not want to do it.
