I've finished the book. If anyone wants to chat about it, reply to this. Or go to my personal LJ, I just updated about it there.
But yeah. O.O It's incredible. I highly suggest reading it.
And since I'm talking about books, did anyone notice that our FYI group for "Bee Season" wants us to write a letter to the authur discussing "deep thoughts" about the book? Does anyone else think that's a little . . . I dunno, immature? That seems like one of those cheesey projects you get from your high school textbook. I can understand notes or thinking about it or key points or themes. But the letter thing just doesn't click for me.
I bet I'll read "Bee Season", love it, and feel guilty for that last paragraph. Ah well.
