Back in July 2003, I had ordered my book thru Amazon and only got it on the Tuesday. Needless to say, even if I was very careful, I was spoiled by a drive by act. That kinda of took the fun out of reading it right away. So there it sat for a long, long time before I picked it up right before book 6 came out but I left it after less then 50 pages. I only picked it up last Sunday because I wanted to read the last one unspoiled. So I picked it up again and some of it was pretty good, some of it I passed very quickly over because honestly that book is way to long for it's own good.
