I'm not a reader. I haven't read a novel since high school probably. I get bored and my mind wanders and I can't focus. My kids read all the HG series and were talking about the movie. So after all these years, I decided to try reading a novel. I sat down with this book and gave it 15 mins. If I wasn't involved in it, forget it and I'm done. A few hours later, and more than half way through the book, I can't stop reading it. I finished it in a few days and quickly started the 2nd!
