Read in October, 2008

What a strange little book. The ending just kind of fizzles out. Its a scary thought that there may be people out there using all their energy to destroy another because they can or just want to. The writing reminded me too much of grad school where people try so hard to talk lofty and gain stars but just seem laughable to real people. How sad for them that they need it so badly. I guess I'm a little at fault for looking to this book for some kind of entertainment value..I knew what the title is and what it was about. It had its moments but there's just not enough of an ending.
