    ...only $4, I thought what they hey...

    I picked this book up in San Francisco, in some book store, it was on sale for like $4, I thought, what the hey. So, when I actually got around to reading it, I hadn't realized that this book would become one of my all time favorites. I just finished it, and I can't get it out of my head. It's just so intricate, fun, and packed with odd characters and odder circumstances that you just wish you were there too, watching this whole book fold out. The best book ever. Buy it, and cherish it.

    Captivating and Intriguing

    I must say the this is one of the best books I have read in quite awhile. Aside from a few minor details and some obscure, unnecessary information, this book was very well writen. It all ties together nicely at the end, although it is somewhat far-fetched. I honestly had trouble putting it down. The complex characters were well developed and complimented each other nicely. At some points, however, I felt as though the author was questioning my intelligence by pointing out references and coincidences that should have been left for the reader to pick up on. I highly recommend this book; it's complex, fast-paced, challenging and though-provoking.

    An eye opening journey

    This book is an intelligent form of art. It opened my eyes to new places in the world, and put words to what I'd often felt but could not express. I relished every word, and re-read some of my favorite parts. Some of the astronomy references in the book were obscure -- but the point and theme of those references does come out. I am amazed by this authors mind, and am anxiously awaiting another novel.

    Magic...but fire the copy editor

    This was compelling and magical from the very first page. The distant stars seem to infiltrate and influence Enzo's and Mala's lives, leading them to their intertwined destinies. Coincidences abound -- just as they do in real life. I'd like to give this five stars. But a subplot involving vampires drags it down to pop culture level. And the copy editing deflated many of the magical moments. For example: saguaro cacti don't grow in Utah -- ONLY in southern Arizona and northern Mexico; Four Corners is in southwestern, not southeastern, Colorado; hibiscus don't grow on vines; stucco is used on walls, not roofs, unless you like leaky ceilings; the Rio Puerco is not blue; a direct flight from Albuquerque to Honolulu? I wish I could find one! But maybe that was part of the magic...?
