Yet another Joiner King rant...

Page 196 - Fuckity fuck fuck fuck. STOP DOING THAT! I'm going to implode or combust or something. There's this tic over my right eye, and it's because of you, Mr. Denning. This is not a hardcover, this is a paperback, and you have NO RIGHT to do this to me over a lousy paperback!

Had you actually gone through with it, I'm quite sure I'd be hunting you down with a machete, as soon as I could stand. That was quite possibly the cruelest thing you have done since Star by Star, not to mention bloody brilliant.

Please, no more. I hate myself for asking this, but can I please have a cop-out ending? Just this once?

Okay, it turns out Ben is around seven years old. And Jacen is still a putz. Perhaps it's that every character so far is spot-on, which just makes the whole story more real. I have this funny feeling I'm not going to get much sleep until I finish this accursed book. Right, then, back we go...

Oh so very curious as to what the Japanese cover will look like. Please let there be more people on it...

Yes, I am quite aware by now that I am beyond pathetic. Feel free to mock me, though my sanity isn't perhaps as stable as it could be. In my defense, I've been waiting for this for a while, and it's the first one I've truly stayed spoiler-free on, and have I mentioned I don't handle surprises very well? Just ignore me until I get everything out of my system, then I'll be fit for polite company.

p.s. - My most sincere apologies to ruebert, an innocent bystander to my depraved ravings last nights. I'm very sorry to have shown you my darker geek. I swear, I'll find a twelve-step program to join just as soon as I'm done reading.

Nah...you can stop whenever you want. Right? ;)

I realize it's a paperback, but still...hello? Do you remember Star by Star? It was long, grim, bloody, violent, dark and completely infuriating. Stands to reason that a Denning paperback would be short, grim, bloody, violent, dark and completely infuriating.

Ben's seven? Wow...

I finally realized what people are thinking and what they must look like when they hear me geek-out over stuff... I heard Ray and Grant babbling about Warcraft and my brain was totally like

"..... oh.... my.... freaking.... WTF?!"
