I liked this book alot. I thought that the plot was great, I didn't expect anything that happened at all. It was dark, yet with a fullness that I have not read in a long time. The characters are really easy to identify with. When something bad is about to happen you just want to yell out and warn them from the coming danger. The entire story develops as the trilogy goes on. Reading "Monsters of Men" right now (#3)and you will not want to put either one of them down. Trust me, get this book!!!!

The uniqueness in Ness's writing really struck a cord with me. Reading this book had me feeling like I was running along side the characters. Not to mention you fall in love with a dog that only thinks about poop. Highly recommend to any reader.
