really liked it
Read from June 07 to September 29, 2012

Yes, I finally finished. I must say that I struggled through the beginning of the book. I knew nothing about the story when I first started. I'd never seen the show and only knew I was about to start a new fantasy type book that I hoped would be Tolkien-ish. Well, it turns out it is nothing like Tolkien. I had no idea what was going on during the first part of the book and had it not been for my boyfriend who explained everything to me, I would have probably given up. The last 300 or so pages, however, I flew through. I couldn't put it down. And now I'm tempted to go on and read more in the series. So all in all, the book was nothing like what I expected, but I ended up really enjoying it by the end.
