I started reading this in 2008 or 2009. Got twenty pages in and put it down deciding it wasn't for me. With the movie coming out, I had to read the book first because it's just who I am. So i picked it up again thinking that I'd suffer through it and this time around I couldn't put it down. It was amazing. I am really not sure that it needed to be part of a trilogy, because the ending was so perfect, but I am sure I'll get suckered in to the others as well. OMG!!! I so wanted Wanda and Ian to be together forever. I am a nerd like that. When she woke back up in a new body I was so excited and the fact that he was waiting for her to get used to the new body. Swoon.
