YOU GOT TO FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS TO READ A BOOK!!! This book was very good. It leaves you thinking. Why is it that when you find something that you find fasinating, there's always someone saying it has some dark twisted meanig behind it. Like come on really are people really that bored with there lives.
