I really liked this book! I got it for free for a group read, but I would have gladly paid for it because I enjoyed it so much. The author makes The Land of Nod, an alternate, or parallel universe, seem like a very real place because of his spot on descriptions. The book moved along at a really good pace, and I found myself unable to put it down most of the time.
If I had the option here I would have given this book a rating of 4.5 stars, -.5 only because I thought the ending was a bit abrupt. I was enjoying the story very much, and I do highly recommend that you read it, but I would like to have seen the ending drawn out a bit more. It just seemed like I was reading along, enjoying the momentum, and then -- it ended. Happily, it did end in a way which made it quite clear that there is going to be a second book, and I cannot wait to read it!
In summary: This book was an excellent story that could do with a bit more of a drawn out ending, but I highly recommend it, and I can't wait for the second book!
