I just reread this again and if possible love it more than ever; I should stop being surprised, that happens every time I read it. It's always been my favorite of the series (though D&C might have changed that, but I'll have to reread it a few times, too, to be sure). It doesn't seem to matter how many times I read it, or how exactly I know what's about to happen (or how many inconsistencies or odd word choices ("devoted") I notice), I still get so engrossed it almost becomes more real to me than whatever is actually happening IRL around me. I guess it would be a seriously bad idea to listen to the audio book while driving!So, yeah, 5+ stars. And May cannot get here soon enough for my next fix.
