Probably should not have read it after watching the movie, although was curious why everybody was so engrossed in these books that they would finish in a few sittings. Gave it try -- was looking forward to the 'outstanding detail' people rave about -- but frankly, was quite bored. Probably should have started with book 1, but I didn't feel all that behind since I saw the films. Still, I applaud her creativity, which is undeniable, in all the vocabulary and characters she created. We can't forget to not take that for granted (triple negs!)
