I didn’t think that the first book was that great; it was like Grossman was trying to hard to be clever and witty. At best I would say it ended with more promise than it began. On that note I thought I would give the second book a chance. Like most other reviewers have said, this book was much better the first. I still feel Quentin is whiney (though he does grow a little), and the best news is that you don’t hear much from the other characters from the previous book. What makes this book work so well is the story line with Julia. As I don’t want this to be a spoiler, I will leave it at that.
Not to be over looked is Mark Bramhall’s excellent job as a narrator. I could listen to this guy all day.
