I "read" the book. It is good, good story telling, good descriptive movement as well. Didn't like the "voices" sometimes, the reverend, vigil, and Michael were good though. If they haven't made a movie yet, I would suggest letting the guy from w/o a paddle, he was also in punk'd at the beginning.
It is a good book, I definately recomend it.
Thank you for all of your great work with the world of DragonLance. If I had not fallen in love with the stories and characters for DragonLance I would never have had the interest or courage to explore the topics in the Immortals. I have not enjoyed a story more or become so attached to characters as I have in the past few days. I listened to you book while at work and was a little embarased because I wept several times in the story. Thank you for having the courage to tackle such a controversial subject and for giving me characters that will stay in my heart for the rest of my life.
