    Hardcover Ø Spanish Fly PDF ´ spanish free, Spanish Fly eBookI wasn't sure I'd like this or get into it but it was a good read an interesting story and a bit of fun The characters were a bit two dimensional but I wanted to be entertained and so they didn't disappoint and I'll remember them for a long time Virgil and Rose travelling state to state pulling cons and then they bring in Jack I like the transformation of Jack his growth his quick thinking and his decision in the end The cons were interesting looking at humans and their predictable means of thinking and being able to play on that I found very amusing Being stuck in a reading rut this helped get me back into a nightly habit of reading and is just what was needed I would recommend it for in between heavier reads to lighten the load a little
