    Don't skim. It's basically a short story.

    Really great book so far. Highly recommend.

    Magician is AWESOME! I love me some Raymond E. Feist.

    Am I a huge dork for thinking of the video game Beyond Good and Evil before I think of Nietzsche?

    Good God! The Hunger Games books were terrible! I didn't expect much from them to begin with since they're YA and all the teeny-weenies love them, but they managed to fall considerably below my (already adjusted, already low) quality expectations for these kinds of books. Horrendous writing (to speak of technique alone), poor character development, the worst world-building I've ever come across, an ad-hoc, illogical plot (with some crappy, inconsequential romantic arc thrown in), no likeable characters, and just...really substandard story telling.

    I mean, I know it's supposed to be kind of sucky by design because YA = semi-literate moron (apparently), but the level of bad going on in these books just genuinely took me by surprise.

    I find that after I read this kind of shit, I really can't find it in my heart to agree with the people who claim that, "well, if it gets the kids reading, then it's all good!"
