So, I guess I'll start us of.
This has got to be one of my favorite all time books. I really enjoy the characters, story, everything.
I was really hoping that Archie would make a reappearance at some point in the story after separating from Sister. It kind of makes me sad that he probably died long before the story ended.
Also, I was hoping that whatever force possessed Paw Paw underneath his store would show up again, but it never does, and I suppose we are left to our on devices as to what it was.
I really enjoy the way that McCammon makes you like even the evil characters. Despite the horrible acts that Macklin and Roland commit throughout the book, you still can't help but to root for them. Me anyway.
And then there's Scarlet Eye/Friend, who is just awesome. How many other villians want to Watusi people's bones to dust? And I love the way that he seems to view himself as good. He calls Swan and the crown evil numerous times because they spread hope to humanity and hence would prolonge our miserable existance, therefore being inhumane.
And I also would like to add one of my favorite quotes in the book: "Oh... wow", Alvin Mangrim's last words.
There was one little piece of the plot that confused me however, and that would be the end. Friend flies on out of the bunker through a vent, not through the door. And yet Swan shuts the door and throws away the key, because now no one can get inside. But couldn't Friend just pop back in through the vent and atart it back up? He was there when the Prez entered in the startup code, so i didn't fully understand that.
That's all I got for now.
