Read in March, 2012

This is a young adult book however, not nearly as sophisticated as Philip Pullman and his 'Dark Materials' series or Tolkein or even the Harry Potter books. I never did read the 'Twilight' books, but I've heard all about them and it only bolstered my desire to avoid them. That said, this book and it's series are still a compelling read even without the political and/or religious underpinnings that seem to reinforce the other young adult novels into some level of socio-political commentary. It is simply a good story with characters that evolve and shift in an organic kind of way as the story progresses. It is sweet and told well. Is this an *amazing* book? Not if one is above a certain age, I suspect. However, it is worth the read and a nice respite from the dark anger and violence and sex found in other books. It just leaves you with a satisfying feeling and you get oddly attached to the characters. It's one of those stories that when you are done, you feel a bit of melancholy as if you've had to move very far away from all your good friends.
