I think Epic may have been over stating things. Don’t get me wrong the book was ok but really how Epic a detour can an emotionally stunted girl who’s most interesting hobby is her passion for musical theatre and an average guy with a random fascination with historical explorers have. The answer- not very. To put it another way there are a lot of games of twenty question in this book (the standard boring kind!) Epic? Um... No. I did however like the mixed media feel of the book and perhaps if the book had had a different title I would have been a little less disappointed.
