I have read many other bloggers' reviews of this book, and I think some blogs really had interesting things to say. Since I found my thoughts to be somewhat in line with theirs, and especially in light of the recent postings about plagiarizing book blog entries..... check out The Compulsive Reader and Dog-Eared and Well-Read. I think these bloggers not only gave good summaries, but I found I echoed some of their thoughts about the book, as well.
I had been waiting for this book, so in the meantime, I went back and re-read the first book, picked up the second book, and now have thoroughly saturated myself with the story. I now also look at the moon with a new respect. Admittedly, I had issues with some things in this last book, mostly the love story between Miranda and Alex, and a few other things (just how did Miranda's little band of people travel so quickly and safely??). And sometimes, I didn't really like Miranda --- she starts out in the first book as a little sulky, and I figured she would have grown a little more by the third book --- and sometimes, between you and me, I wanted to smack her. But overall, this was a satisfying read, and worth the wait.
