This was the best book I have read in quite some time! I don't even like to read that much either. Finally I found a book worthy of my time and imagination!

Gripping. Extremely hard to put down. Has even made me want to climb mountains(just not the worlds highest mountain).

I had to read this book as a summer reading assignment in my english
class. even though my friends told me it was a great and exciting novel,
i couldn't help but be frustrated by it. i don't know if i just didn't
absorb the material or if i was just confused. there were too many people
involved and i couldn't really follow it. i hated how nothing happened in
the first 200 pages either. grr, maybe it's just me.
