Connell rocks. That's not much of a review but I'm not going to try and pack an analysis of this book into a paragraph. It's good shit and if you are interested in thinking about masculinity in any way, I highly reccomend this book.

Plus, I thought I

This book didn't take me long to read and I cried through a lot of it though, oddly, not when Lucy died. I knew that part was coming. It was more of the twists and turns of life and friendship that made me sniffle.

I am a fan of this series and enjoyed reading the book. That said, the political intrigue and complex ties of betrayal/counter-betrayal that were present in her previous books were missing. This was an interesting story about a messed up kid coming o ...more

This book had some useful nuggets of information on jealousy, communication, and ways to encourage people to get what they need from their relationships (romantic or otherwise) that I think are applicable to everyone, not just people in poly situatio ...more

It took me a while to get into this book (halfway through, maybe) but I enjoyed it once I did. I'll pick up the next book though I'm not chomping at the bit to get it.

I like Charles de Lint's work. I think that his approach to how magic and spirituality fit into and around the "real" world is interesting and thought provoking. I enjoyed the meshing of different cultural beliefs about the spirit world in this novel ...more

I finished it. Whee! It was interesting to read a book in this series that wasn't primarily set at Hogwart's and Rowling did do a nice job of wrapping everything up. I could have lived with a little more razzle dazzle in the middle of the book but I ...more

I read this a few year's back... actually as a TA for a course on drugs. It was a good way to read the book. Even if society were "perfect" it would still suck. Thoughts like that are what get me up in the morning... that and a large dose of soma.

I loved the PERN series when I was younger. I think I own almost all of them. This one was... meh. It was a quick read and cute but I wasn't as riveted... and I don't just think it's because I'm older. I re-read some of the PERN classics and still lo ...more
