    " This was a really good book. It is based on a guy Named Skellig. Michael, who is the main character, if you compare him to the beginning he has changed a lot, he seemed dull in the beginning but he changes over the time after he met Skellig and Mina who is a really uniqe girl, she has her own perspective and observes thigs differ ently since she is home schooled. Michael has a Baby sister who is sick, and she has a heart problem, Michael was worried that she wasn't going to make it. Michael also cared about Skellig and he would bring him a "27 and a 53" which is chinese food, and also Brown ale. Michael is a very interesting character in the book, he doesn't believe that there was such things as Angels. you should really read it, Fantastic book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janeen-san | 1/26/2014

    " An incredibly good book. I absolutely loved it. We listened to it on tape while traveling, and the narrator was fantastic. Although the subplot about evolution didn't really go anywhere (or maybe it did, but we haven't figured it out yet) this was a great book. I really connected with the author, because in the Author's Note at the beginning, he said he began this book without knowing where it was going to go. I do this all the time. Definitely a good book, and I loved the message/theme. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumn | 6/20/2011

    " It was the first book that I was really impressed with by its entwining powers - and the first book I remember actually disagreeing with, because it said stuff like "evolution is certain/positive". I still really liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 6/6/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 6/4/2011

    " I just can't get into it for some reason. There's nothing "bad" about it, so I can't NOT recommend it, but it's not grabbing me. Short chapters are good, plot a little slow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elyssa | 6/2/2011

    " This is a short book that can be read din maybe two hours or less. It can be considered young adult or teen read but I found it very uplifting. It's not a must read, but if you find anywhere cheap, it'll warm your heart for a while. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 5/31/2011

    " Really good and very unusual all at the same time! ;D "
