really liked it
Read from November 15 to 16, 2011

** spoiler alert ** I loved a lot of things about this book. It would have gotten five stars if it hadn't included a very annoying hook at the beginning--the type that is just THE major climactic event of the book tacked on at the beginning to generate interest. That kind of a hook is an insult to readers and it's kind of disappointing that the writer couldn't think of another way to generate interest than spoiling the ending. But anyway. I loved the writing and characters--it's been a while since I've been so engrossed in a world. I even liked the plot, even if it was a little bit too convenient. Sometimes it's nice for "literature" to have a happy ending.
