J.M. Very interested in what you think of this one. I've picked it up twice at the store, but still haven't made the purchase. I think I'm afraid it'll be too "in vogue" or something, not sure.

Stephen I am a third of the way through it and I am REALLY liking it so far. I have seen a lot of "ho hum" or even poor reviews of this one so I was reluctant to start it. At the moment, I am very glad that I did.

Cassy One of the book's central messages is that part of growing up is reconciling your childhood dreams with the realities of everyday life.

You really nailed it!

I walked away from this book feeling depressed. I am glad to read it had the opposite effect on you.


Mike (the Paladin) Oh well, we can't agree on everything. :)

J.M. Wow, man! Okay. I'm in. Thanks for the excellent review, my friend (as always). And if you dig it, I'm 86 percent sure I will, too, since that's our compatibility when we compare books, after all.

Thanks Kemper. Looking forward to the sequel.


Mike (the Paladin) I see you updated your review of this one. I suppose it's one of the books we've disagreed the most over. It happens. I'm glad you liked it...I didn't :).

I can't wait. Early reviews I've seen have been very positive.

Wesley I just found out there is a sequel to this and am fast tracking it to the top of my list, I HAD NO IDEA. It's like winning the lottery, I cannot wait to get my hands on it! Wonderful review as always Stephen.


message 12: by Stephen (new)

Stephen Thanks, Wesley. I haven't read the sequel yet, but thought this was superb (if my review wasn't obvious enough on that point).

Stella  ☢FAYZ☢ Chen Just picked this up from a local bookstore because of your review. :) I hope to start it soon.


message 14: by Stephen (new)

Stephen I hope you love it, Stella. Opinions are all over the map on this one. I thought it was brilliant.


PrincessofthePage I read this first book when it came ot and lives it also, giving out a rare 5 stars. I got the sequel I was impatiently waiting for, started reading... And put it down. I'm hoping this second time picking up the sequel will be to a result. Did you review second?


message 16: by Andrew (new)

Andrew Obrigewitsch I'm reading it and fell the books is a bit satirical, and I find it quite funny.

Frank Roberts When did he manage happiness? Because it wasn't in this book.
