I read this book a little while ago, but I've been thiknig about it lately. My brother hated the book, I, on the other hand, loved it. I can see why someone might hate it, it could be considered slow-paced and boring, but it was just so greatly written. The ending, as sad as it was, was great. It was the exact ending that was needed. I'm not saying that the way the ending came about was a good one, but the ending it self, where he kills his own best friend...it's just amazing. Comments?
