Read in January, 2006 — I own a copy

A little better than the second in the series, still enjoyable as an easy read. However, when one has to skip entire large paragraphs due to it being the same re-hashed material, it becomes clear that Green has no faith in his readers of having already read the first two books before picking up this one. Three (or so) mentions of why he can't use his gift is a bit excessive, and especially an issue when its mentioned twice in the same chapter. If you remove the repeated information, it reads like a dark short story, thus why its still listed as liked.
