Nan Hi R.S., thank you for the friend request. I was vastly reassured by your assertions that you do not spam. As you seem to understand, spam is wretched. :)

Fforde is one of my favorites, but I'm sadly behind on his books. I haven't yet read the Last Dragonslayer books or the newest Next.

Wan I wasn't expecting the 5th wave to be so... basic (characters and plot). If you watch a lot of sci-fi shows like I do then it won't be anything special.

Thanks for the add!
