I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Well, I'm enjoying this novel quite a bit.
What a relief! You know how it is when someone with significance in your life asks you to read his wife's book? You feel pressure to like it.
No problem with this one--I think its going to be a 4 star book.
