Read from November 03 to 12, 2011 — I own a copy

I'll admit it, I amost gave up on this novel. I put it off for weeks, after reading only 50 pages. After a while, I promised myself I'd just jump in and finish it, before I moved onto another book.

I'm so glad I did continue. I can honestly say, this is one of the best books i've ever read!

The beginning is slow, it does not make much sense, but as the book continues, the magic happens. I learn more about Taylor Markham's life, and the mysteries wrapped around her and the "wars". I don't want to say much, because I'd hate to ruin the magic of the story to those who haven´t read it yet.

I suggest, urge, beg, plead to everyone out there that they read On the Jellicoe Road. You will be transported into a wonderful world with characters that will forever live in your heart. And with this being my first Marchetta book, I am now on a mission to read her other books.
