    My students like it

    Love the book, but I would like to use this space to report on what my college students think of it. Death Watch is required reading in my Writing in the Humanities and Children¿s Literature courses. Initial reactions were of the ¿500 pages! Are you kidding?¿ variety. The book arrived in our college bookstore yesterday, and I am exceedingly pleased to say that many of the most vocal skeptics are now quite enthusiastic. From today¿s class: ¿I can¿t wait to read the next chapter¿; ¿I¿m staying up late tonight to read this¿; and ¿They should make a movie of this.¿ If you want a novel that provides more than just a bubblegum chew, a novel that encourages you to linger in a carefully, lovingly, artistically realized world of engaging characters and vivid settings, Death Watch is for you. The language is rich (¿almost musical,¿ one student noted), and the pace is perfectly modulated to allow a reader to savor the words without stalling the narrative. In just one day of reading, the book has begun to win over 5 classrooms of college freshmen and sophomores, a fact that kinda speaks for itself.

    Death Watch

    Actually, it wasn't bad. I enjoyed it; I simply wish there'd been a bit more action. It was a very passive narrative all together and it made for some yawns.

    I hope the second one is better.

    Amazing

    Wonderful book, love the detail he took to describe all the tiny details of the book. Also loved how he built up the sequal along with keeping with the suspense of the main story. Cant wait for the sequal
