Every once in a while I pick up a novel at random and a couple weeks ago it was this one, along with the second book. I'm going to have to say that this is thee best novel I've ever read that I picked up just on a whim! I could say so much about it but I don't feel like writing a novel on my own here. I'll just say that this book, along with being well written, made me think. I found myself having to stop what I was reading and picture it in my mind because it sounded awesome. I was looking up material on the internet after reading chapters. I was laughing. I was just overall bloody amazed at the story and wondering how the hell Dan even thought of it in the first place. I would suggest if anyone is curious about reading something different for once than look no further than this novel. It's a mind bender and will tickle your brain for sure!
