This, of course, is a re-read. Or rather, it's a re-re-re-re-read. Actually, I've lost count of how many times I've read this book. But, It has new covers so I must buy them all.
The book is magic. Every time I read it, it reminds me of why I am an avid reader. I love everything about this book. The characters, the setting, the world and the whole story. It's a pure joy to read.
When I hear them talking all about their criticisms, or literary shortcomings, or the blah blah blah, but really, what does that mean? And do I care.. NO. Real readers want to know, will I love reading this book. And, if you even moderately like fantasy and magical universes and good verses evil type of stories, then you will love this book. I love reading this book and I guess there is really nothing more to say.
