really liked it

I loved this book. It was a bitter-sweet story, yet still left a good feeling in your heart when that last page was turned. It's not action-adventure. It's not horror. It's not sci-fi. It's about what it is to be a human being. It's about struggle, pain, hunger, disappointment, loss, grief, happiness, anger, love, death, etc. In other words, it's about all of us.

Read it. It's like life itself. No one can tell you about a book. You have to experience it on your own.

Eric Layton Dammit! Why can't we edit comments? In the above, I meant to type "I'm" not "I've". It's terrible to be such and anal grammar/spelling/punctuation Nazi. ;)

Eric Layton The 2nd "I've", by the way. ;)
