The Best

Best book I have ever read. I am surprised that people dislike it and I also find it irritating that people would compare it to other pieces of work.

Thoroughly Enjoyable!

Though a bit hard to get used to at first, this story captivated me like no other, making me finish it in under a day.

There is music throughout the whole story, which takes some getting used to, as I mentioned, but pretty soon, it BECOMES the story; especially the little bit of rock music later on.

It's a great book for all ages. No swearing or gore, and plenty of higher philosophies for us older "kids".

The book reminded me of a better Artemis Fowl-Lemony Snicket mash up, with a bit of the "Gone" Series mixed in, while still being it's own, unique tale.

The best parts are the chapters with Mr. E. (hehe, mystery!) What a great rendition of a creation myth.

I loved it! On to book two.

Great!!

The story is so descriptive that it really captures you. The details describing every idea the author introduces are intricate and thoughtful providing a very powerful story. The mix of fact and fantasy are so well thought that they appeal to both youth and adult. A great read, or listen!!

MadeYourMolars, you ought to finish a book before you offer your opinion, or at least read the books you're comparing it to since none of the ones you mentioned have much common ground.
