I was first attracted to this book by the awesome, then I was put off by the thought that one shouldn't judge a book by its cover, and that there wasn't much in the world that could be as awesome a the cover. You see, I didn't think that I could end up being that lucky twice. THE BOOK WAS BRILLIANT - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
