The truth is . . . a friend recommended reading this series to me. She blushed so big when she was talking about these books that I moved quickly on her recommendation. Uh, wow. I know plenty of folks who picked up the first one and quit after that. I say, if you're going to dive headlong into a world you don't get . . . read the whole trilogy. And I did. I'm glad I did.
I hear there is gonna be a movie. I'm having a hard time imagining that kind of film being in a theatre that isn't located in some back alley with a some sort of "show-your-photo-ID" entry system, but I'll roll with it . . . . .
