Fantastic Ending

This book, and the series at that, seemed to whisk by so quickly. It really was a fun ride. I really didn't want it to end, and I felt like it was never going to, but when it was said and done, it felt so.... fitting.... Subtle. The performance is one of the best I've heard. I'm very excited that they're making these into movies. I can't wait to hop onto the traction cities again.

Childhood read rediscovered

Just finished trought the whole series, I remember reading the first book as a kid. I loved the setting and the characters. Now I got to appreciate the interactions among them with a different prospective. And i really loved the ending, which was perfect in the way the narrator portraits it!
