I tried reading this a few months ago but just couldn't get into it. Then my friend Lauren and I were discussing the TV show "Lost." My theory was that they're all dead (just like an episode of the old Rod Serling TV series "Twilight Zone"), but she speculated that it was going to be just like the end of this book. So I read it, and now I know what she meant. (Don't want to spoil the book for anyone who hasn't read it, so that's all I'll say.)

I've heard lots of great things about this book, so hopefully others will like it better than I. As I told Lauren, I hated this book almost as much as Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea." She agreed, saying that she just liked the ending. Then she added that she never even finished "The Old Man and the Sea," so far all she knows that book ends with a surprising twist, too.
