    LOL, see if takes me 50 days to finish a book... time is rare for me.

    Started enjoying it more after pg.100 and started LOVING it after pg.300-or-so.

    Great story though, loved the set-up, timeline, characters, tie-in to world-as-we-kn(_)w-it
    One needs to be focused to absorb all the new terminology the author chose - which is struggle at first, but was really well done.

    I'm gonna read the latest Stephen King as a "break"... (my wife read it, said "it was good")...

    And then onto Book #2 in series!
    Thanks.

    It didn't, it came out well before to critical acclaim. She is a fantastic writer.

    I just finished Cory Hircshís book The Save of My Life. Itís a follow up to his Players Tribune piece a few years back. WOW. If youíre triggered easy, donít read. His opening will send you off. Itís a damn good read, one of the best ones Iíve read.

    I've never heard of this book but it looks good. What does the bolded section of your comment mean though? Easily "triggered" by what?

    if you suffer from anxiety issues, this one part of his book will likely be tough read for you..its intense AF, at least i thought so..
