While reading this I wasn't sure about it at all. I went from liking it to not wanting to read it at all. Yet I couldn't tear myself away from it. Its just one of those novels that you just go back to over and over beause you NEED to find out what happens. All in all I think that it is a good book. Though i'm not sure I would have picked it up again, or chosen it at the drop of a hat. I guess i'm more indifferent about it, though I was just super curious about what was going to happen next.
