Rachel Coker, October 14, 2010 (view all comments by Rachel Coker)
A true classic. Beautifully written, compelling story, haunting characters, the works! This was my third or fourth time reading it, and it never disappoints. I think this is actually an incredibly modern story, one that makes more and more sense in our universe of reality TV and worship of unworthy superstars. I also noticed a few passages that I think had an influence on plot lines in the Harry Potter books.
