it wasn't as good as the first book but definitely better than the second one. i get the author have a great imagination and master of words but honestly sometimes it get a bit confusing that i have to read the same paragraph twice to understand what happened. i really wish she would stop narrating her books.
I would, have, and will again. While I still think the first book is so far the best in the series, the first book is -also- one of my favorite books I've ever read, so it's a bit of an unfair comparison. This book is incredibly clever, and while it is very funny, it is also a touching story. It also brings back the author as the narrator, which is -fantastic-.
One of the most memorable moments is when the yeti punches the car on the moon and the events immediately ensuing. Seriously though- do you need to hear more than that, in this book (with a touching and well-crafted story), a yeti punches a car on the moon? Isn't that -alone- enough to get you interested?
I love September to death. It's hard between her, Saturday, and A-L, but I think September wins out.
There's a good one at the end, but in lieu of that because of spoilers, I'll pick the one when September meets her younger self. I really liked that moment- it was a neat connection, and really nicely encapsulated September's deep wishes.
This whole series is fantastic- the author is simply amazing, both as an author and as a narrator. I am very glad she came back for this book after not narrating the second, and I hope she continues. She is a really gifted writer- very clever without being pretentious.
