I started this book yesterday as my daughter and niece want me to take them to see the movie again. I had put off reading it for the past few years. Don't really know why as I had enjoyed reading the earlier books. I supposed I didn't want to be reading just because everyone else was reading it at that time.
Within a few pages I pulled right back into the story and the characters have become alive for me. Every now and then I have to re-read lines to figure out who is being referred to with all the him, her, she and he's. I also find it quite distracting the number of semi-colons that the author uses. Yes, they are a useful tool when used well, but there are times when it is much more effective to just write two sentences.
I should be sipping cups of chilled pumpkin juice while reading, but have chosen instead, a nice hot cup of tea.
Have you read this book and the series? No spoilers in the comments please. I have managed to shush many people when they would have gladly told me who gets killed etc. When they started to speak I would put my hands to my ears and chant "I'm not listening, I'm not listening" just as a little child would do.
