bookshelves: book-club, ya
Read from August 11 to 24, 2010

I'd like to rate this somewhere between "it was OK" and "i liked it." The last 150 pages or so were so exciting! But the lead-up was awfully slow. Still, I cared about these rabbits (erm, hlessil) and am glad I've now read it.

Maya I have tried to read this book twice in the last few years, and completely lost interest half way through. but if it gets exciting at the end, maybe I should push through and finish!

I don't want to oversell it, but it really gets quite exciting around p 300 or so--there's, like, a heist that happens.
