It was so easy to become immersed in this story and forget about my surroundings. I really enjoyed the story and am happy it wasn't a typical "younger age" book. The language and formatting of the book made it easy for me--I'm out of the target audience range--to read without finding it to be too childish. In fact, it seemed almost more like a YA book than many books I have read within the YA genre. I did watch the movie first, but I enjoyed the book more. The movie is a good adaptation but I liked the characters more in the book. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series especially after the teaser added at the end of the book.
