hahaha no worries Gord, your book taste still rocks, and that review was awesome, I was cracking up throughout the whole thing. xD
I can agree with some of your points for sure, and like you said, if some people didn't like some books where would the joy of debate be?
I do agree that it was for sure not THE BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ!!!!!!!!! haha but I think I also tend to just latch on to plots that have such a good premise and then it makes me like them quite a bit because I know that even if the author sucks at writing they're good with ideas, which makes me like them better. =)
So, I guess by digressing that way I'm trying to say that I'm less harsh on authors and their mistakes and lack of character development etc. than you may be. I'm so forgiving aren't I? :)
Plus, don't feel so bad about hating Chuck, that kid ticked me off too, and when he died I was like "Oh well, too bad." haha
I did kind of very muchly like the kick arse faux revolutionaries at the end though. Woohoo revolution... even if it's all a hoax. :)
But on another note did I ever tell you that you should try reading the Chaos Walking trilogy? It's a young adult book, and I'm not sure if you'll like it or not but I enjoyed it quite a bit. I thought of it when you said that you bawl while reading books, I do too and that one made me cry like crazy at the end of the last book, even though I felt a bit stupid for crying that much. =/
So how I viewed the flaw that you saw in The Maze Runner, I figured that they started off with a bunch etc. then in the first few starting off months of the maze then there were more than just 1 boy a month brought up. You know? Like, one a week, or a few together in a delivery.... I'm not sure how I concluded that... now you're making me doubt myself. =P
Thanks! That's good to know. =) God Bless You Mr. Rosewater was my first Vonnegut book and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I'm thinking of reading Slaughterhouse Five next, except that my library doesn't have it. =P
But thanks so much for the heads up about the recurring characters, that'll be a good thing to consider before I read Breakfast of Champions.
Until I can get my hands on Slaughterhouse do you think that it would be a good idea to read Cat's Cradle next?
