Culled out some of the books from my shelves to make room for more...... these are books I've read that I don't think I would ever read again or share with anyone. Sigh.....

CrowCAH Any P&P copies? It's a modern classic, but any copy I don't have will find a happy home in my growing collection! 2y
krismac @CrowCAH - sorry I only have one copy and I'm keeping it. I have one copy of each of Jane Austen's books. Some of my favorites! 2y

I enjoyed this book but I didn't love it. It reminded me a little bit of books by Connie Willis. The author jumps right into the action and took some time before really explaining what was happening. I still don't quite buy into everything but I do want to hear and learn more about the characters. I will read the sequels just not immediately.

mdm139 I felt the same way, I think there was to much chaos and too many things went wrong for the characters. If they left out a couple scenes and extended some others it would have been better. 3y
