Nolan, eHawk and myself will be starting this buddy read on August 23rd.

As usual, please mention which section (chapter) you are reading and hide any spoilers between the < spoiler > tags.

If anyone else wants to join us just post here! The more the merrier :)

Hey guys, are we still on track for this?
I plan on starting it whenever I get a bit of time to sit down and read :)

Addy, feel free to join in the discussion, just please hide any spoilers ;)

Hmm I had only thought of what I mentioned in the first post. People mentioning what chapter they are on and then hiding any spoiler comments between tags. So I guess that means I would love if we all go at whatever pace suits us each the best.

With work I never know how much reading I can get per day and to be frank I don't like the idea of imposing a certain amount of pages or chapters on someone.

Hmm it's going to be difficult to keep track of this. The chapters are not numbered, at least in my edition. I finished the first one.
Scary... I wonder what the heck happened.

Looks like the narrative will be alternating between past and present.

Found chapter three a bit repetitive.

I finished page 92. It's hard to put this down. Even though I feel a lot has been assumed instead of explained so far I am definitely digging the horror atmosphere.

I am using the edition I linked in this topic.
I get bird pictures instead of numbers. 1 or 2 birds.

So... anyone else reading this? please share your thoughts!

Well, I finished it a lot sooner than I thought. It seems that the last 90 pages are a bonus story. I will get to that tomorrow.

Final verdict is that although there were several things that felt off to me the fact is I enjoyed the book a lot.

Ana (anaslair) | 2312 comments Mod
Alright, any idea when that will be? :)

this short story is confusing the heck out of me. is this Fiction or an essay?? i can't even keep track of all the names and to be absolutely frank I am utterly bored.

Alright, looking forward to reading your review.
Looks like eHawk ditched us :(

Nolan, does your version have the short story I mentioned?

In the end, there was a lot that could and did go wrong with working on the basis of such a premise. But it was still a thrilling read.
I will be posting my review later today.

So your version did not include the short story?

I am fairly certain there will not be a sequel

You should, it's pretty good.
Hmm that's odd. I got it from book depository. You can still find it there but it's a lot more expensive than when I first bought it. Books at BD generally are...
