An excellent book that I finally decided I wasn’t going to be able to obtain via my library or by trading, so I forked over for it. Worth every penny I have to say and very much re-readable…which is always a good thing if you’ve gone and purchased a book.
This book managed to embody several of my favourite reading ‘things’.
- Language geekery
- GLBT themes
- Young Adult novel
The language geekery element was amazing! A chap who totes around a dictionary and then actually utilises the words he learns… be still my little beating geek heart…. Mmm language.
I actually quite liked, though initially it frustrated me no end that the novel didn’t have a specific ending… it was neither good nor bad and left a lot of manoeuvrability for further novels should the author choose to. However, I did not especially appreciate the pseudo-crap about going back and re-reading it a plethora of times so you could understand… I’m not sure that it would work; I believe I would still have many unanswered questions in regards to the ending.
That being said, I loved the book, very hard to put down and a most excellent purchasing choice.
