Read from May 10 to June 27, 2010

I read most of this book a while ago, and just finished it this week, so I feel like my thoughts are a little disjointed. I enjoyed it quite a bit, even though the ending was less than satisfying. However, I think that has more to do with being raised on "Hollywood endings" rather than anything wrong with the book. The story didn't develop at all how I expected, but it is probably more true to real life.
