I stumbled upon this book at borders.com one day, and the synopsis really appealed to me. i am a lover of nature, and i thought that the premise was really interesting.
well, i loved the book! i was fascinated from the very first chapter. the characters come alive immediately. the language is descriptive to the point where i was really able to picture the world, the people, and the cities. more importantly, it is intelligent! the concepts are clearly developed, and worthy of discussion, particlularly when it comes to ethical issues.
i was reduced to tears during one chapter, and i remember it poignantly. the author was able to write such a vivid and beautiful scene, that i found myself crying while reading it. that does not happen to me too often.
i really liked the characters. i feel as if i know some of them now, and i am anxious to read the next book, so i can see how they all fare.
this entire world became so real to me, that i find myself wondering how everyone is doing, as if they had lives of their own outside of the covers of the book.
so many books today are just plain boring. this one was not! i read whenever i had an opportunity, and i was disappointed as the book drew to a close, knowing that my experience was soon to be over. at least until the next one come out.
