I loved it... Very dramatic and heart wrenching without skipping on light hearted moments and some truly powerful acts of humanity. It was pretty short so I can't see any reason not to recommend it! O'Brien is a remarkable writer.

Murder on the Orient Express - Agatha Christie - 9/10

Pretty Little Liars - Sara Shepard - 6/10 - The TV show is much better. The characters in the book are pretty one-note and vapid, and the tone can't decide who the book's target audience really is.

Darkly Dreaming Dexter - Jeff Lindsay - 8.5/10 - Another TV show that exceeds the novel, though the novel was quite good. It's interesting how the show is verrrrry loosely based on the book, moreso on the characters than the story itself. And I understand that the 2nd season on the show didn't even bother following any of the plots of the other books. Interesting...
Gonna read Dearly Devoted Dexter next.

It's a modern classic. Why did you hate it? I haven't read it in some years, but I remember being enchanted by it. you gotta admit that GGM has one hell of an imagination. I particularly liked how he mixed the completely fantastic with the utterly urbane.

I'm sorry this book wasn't longer I really enjoyed it. Then again I love historical trivia. Five stars

The second and, unfortunately, final volume of Man-Thing's creepy exploits. These later issues were mostly written by Chris Claremont, during the same time as his popular tenure on Uncanny X-Men and Dr. Strange, the latter mystic making several appearances here in the quag-beasts swampy realm. 70s Marvel horror is so delicious.
