Wanna know my reaction after reading the first two charpters? Instant love. It's not often one comes across a book so good that they can't resist finish it the night the start. As a sixth grader, my first thought when my teacher presented us this book was "Great, another book." Sure, I love books, and some of thebooks we've read (like Cromwell's Boy or the Oddessey) were awsome. Others, (like the Illiad) just weren't that great. So I didn't know what to expect. I instantly fell in love with it. I just read some of the other coments like this one:<br><br>to put it simpler it sucked!!!!! :P<br><br>This person really doesn't know good literature when they see it. If they hated it so much, just say "I didn't care for it." Saying "it sucked!!!!! :P" is putting down people who like it, or rather, people with common sense. Those who say Mark failed on this book, you go ahead and write a superb book yourself. I doubt you could keep people reading it long enough past the first page! However, if you read great literaty works of art like this one, your writing skill will increase.
