A Girl Named Digit

Title: A Girl Named Digit

Author: Annabel Monaghan

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin

Series: Digit, Bk 1

ISBN: 9780547668529

Pages: 187

Obtained: Library copy


I first saw this through the library's "Wowbrary" feature (which allows you to see the new items the library is acquiring).  It looked and sounded interesting, so I put it on hold.  Yesterday, after work I picked it up and since I was in the mood for something lighter after reading Prince of Thorns this seemed the perfect fit.  I certainly got what I was looking for.  The story was in turns amusing and interesting.  Enough that I stayed up much longer than I should have to finish it.  But above all, it was light.  At several points I found myself thinking, "Mmhm. Yeah. Right."  But ignore reality and you're left with fun.  Anyway, other points of note include: Each chapter is headed by a bumper sticker quote (this is relative to Digit's great fascination for bumper stickers).  Also, at points Digit will break out actual equations for the book.  Because I totally plan to start calculating things like "7n1 + 3n2 + 9n3 + 7n4 + 3n5 + 9n6 + 7n7 + 3n8 + 9n9" in the middle of reading a book.

Anyway, suspend reality and you have a (I can't believe I'm going to say this) great "beach" read.
