Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: There are lots of funny lines in this story. Monica wonder how she can start a life free of sin when she’s wanted on three continents and has thousands of ratings on e-Hooker sites.

Con: It’s long, confused, and mostly pretty dull. There’s no protagonist, no plot, and no characters we care about at all.
