Finally a book that lives up to its hype! I only read this after my daughter insisted. She's not a big fan of reading so when she tells me to read something I listen up. I may write a more coherent review when I feel better (caught the crud from the kid) but then again I may remain lazy. For now I'll just say I loved the concept, the grittiness and the unexpected turns of the plot. A recommend for anyone looking for a gripping and grueling and totally involving book.
