Yeah Joseph, this is definitely a book for everyone.

While I gave all 5 books 5 stars this first is probably my favorite. I'll reread the first 5 as soon as I see book 6 available for pre order ..."

Another ray of hope!☺

I hope everyone knows I'm just joking around as well!

(I notice that Debra is keeping quiet, you think she's angry with me?o☺☺)

So hopefully there will be little to no pain! LOL!!!"

Linda, you darling, you bring me hope!☺
45884 Just so we're clear here....

I'm sure that George R.R. Martin is a very nice man, long winded but nice...

No really, all kidding aside...I'm the one that nominated this book. It is all going to be wonderful.

Just knowing that those of you who voted for this book are going to be right by my side in the discussion, as we read together, will dull the pain!☻
45884 Janice wrote: "Dang that other group! Game of Thrones is book one of a series.... I just thought I would point that out." one of series of 200 volumes, each with over 2000 pages! ;P

No, no. I'm fine, I'm fine!
45884 Whose idea was this anyway? I must be suffering from Chunskter Madness residual from another reading group! :D
45884 Janice wrote: "You have the physical book or audiobook on order, Almeta?..."

Just the audio.

Your plan sounded like a good one...until the price change!
45884 Going for audio as well. Book's on order.

By-the-way...I meant to say that Sarah is the one who pointed out the IKEA ad. I only posted the link.

45884 Didn't stop reading for Part Two, Chapter 7 through 12.

Boy things are really heating up now. Seniors, underclassman,'s the trickle-down effect! Practically everyone picking on everyone else. Hard to tell who the "good guys" are.

45884 I started this book a while back and then got interrupted with other things.
I'm back to it now and will read all the way through without further interruption.

I really liked the entire Prologue episode. Although not a happy situation, the action packed incident is a great set-up for the continuing story of the characters. We, quickly, already know who they are.

Part One, Chapter 1 (view spoiler)

Part One, Chapter 2 (view spoiler)

Part One, Chapter 3 (view spoiler)

Part One, Chapter 4 (view spoiler)

Part One, Chapter 5 (view spoiler)

45884 Do not read until you have finished the Prologue.

We certainly start out with a bang! St. Michael the Archangel High School (view spoiler)

Although this scene is sparked by tragic circumstances (view spoiler)

45884 Sarah wrote: ". One of the characters mentioned in Rose Madder! It made me instantly think of King's book..."

Hard to tell Sarah.

Rose Madder is the name of an organic paint pigment, extracted from the root of the Madder Plant (Rubia Tinctorum).

So for Fforde, which came first the King or the plant?☻

Either way, your mind was on the correct path...thinking of Uncle Stevie first!☺

Yep, good way to describe the distinction between the two.
