it was amazing
Read from July 07 to 12, 2010

I am a huge fan of Terry Pratchett and Discworld, so I was a bit hesitant to read Nation because it wasn't set in that universe. However, I had heard nothing but good things about the novel, so I decided to give it a try.

Let me just say that I am cursing myself now for waiting, and simultaneously cursing myself for finishing the book so quickly. This novel is one of the most beautiful books that I have ever read, and if I said that I didn't have a tear in my eye* at the end, I would be lying.

If you haven't read this book yet, get to your local bookstore/library or order it online immediately, and be ashamed that you haven't sought it out already.

*Things that make me cry:
Old Yeller
Rocky IV (when Rocky singlehandedly defeats communism with his speech)

As you can see, this is a short list.
