It is a good series! I enjoyed it. There are some touchy-feely messages in it (opening your mind to your fellow man; being at one with the universe), and privacy and personal space are obviously not priorities for this author, but it is still an enjoyable read. There was a moment toward the end where I almost threw the book across the room (mimicking my daughter's reaction to a scene in the first book), but I kept reading and it was resolved to my satisfaction. I recommend it! ( )

Can I just say I love this man, Patrick Ness? No, really. He's my literary hero. THIS is the type of book I want to write. ( )

How?

How does this man make me feel so much for these characters?

How does he manipulate my feelings, raise my hopes just to completely crush them?

How is this man so cunning? He constantly keeps the plot twists coming, one after another, and completely turns the story line on it's head.

How can you make me cry with every book in this series?

How can you leave me like this?

Just, how?! ( )

What an ending!!!!

I still love the idea and the way its written more than the story itself.. I wish it lived up to my expectations.. But it just didnt catch me.

I love reading what the Spackle thinks,it gives a much bigger perspective of everything going on. There should be more books with this kind of setting were you see it from all sides. ( )
