Read from July 07 to September 08, 2010 — I own a copy

** spoiler alert ** An incredible book. Deserves all the accolades and attention it's received. Deserves to be added to the "The Canon" of great literature that everyone should read.

My only problem with it is, call me old-fashioned, but I need more resolution. The ending was so sudden and left so much - virtually everything, in fact, hanging. Not a single subplot or character was "wrapped up". maybe that's the idea.
