The Gardener looks cool and all, but it's just not that good. It's pretty short, but a very long read. It drags on, and had almost no plot line at all. One character would disappear, and never be mentioned again.
I think that this book had an interesting idea, but the author sort of fizzled out with it. It was good at some parts, but not most. Also, this book had a really weird way of introducing characters. They would appear on T.V or have secret pasts (hint, hint). I don't really recommend this book.
