Wow. I really really loved this book. I started it really confused, because friends had told me that it's best to go in not really knowing much, and I spent the first 100 pages wondering what was going on. Interestingly, after I finished and read other reviews, it was just about universal to feel that way about the first 100 pages. Then it kicked into speed, and I couldn't stop reading at the end. I started rereading it the day after I finished it, and then those first 100 pages had a lot of meaning that I had missed in the first go round. I love every single character, and love the way that this book all ties into itself.
