it was amazing

Brilliant, and a lot more fun than detractors would have you believe. It may take you a while to get into the rhythm - I found the first couple of volumes a little slow-going - but once it gets its hooks into you, it's unputdownable, and towards the end I was almost galloping through it.

In no way is it pretentious. The characters are unforgettable, and so are the emotions evoked. Even better, the ending ties everything together in the most extraordinary way, almost like a punchline. It's a formidable achievement, and it may well change your life. It did mine.
