if you're considering this series, listen/read this book!! I'm dying to read the rest now!! they did a great job performing it too, afterwards I felt I had gone through it myself in a dream.
Pros: I got it free
cons: the writing often redundant, simple, and did not paint a picture for me at all; story line not interesting so could hold me hoping things would improve. lost my interest 20 in so I stopped there.
tip: I suppose this is meant for someone in high school? maybe they would like? though didn't seem good example of good literature
Needs more light
If you think you have problems...A good fast read. If you need a good short book to read, this is it.
