Read this one while sitting in various lines at BEA in NYC, and now I know why it's been on everyone's top list....it is pretty amazing. It's a bit hard to explain....and that's one of the reasons I love it; but think of it as a book version of one of the best "bad" SF flicks.....and you'll understand! Basically there is a virus that is accidentally released that turns everyone who touches it into giant grasshoppers....who then eat everyone who ISN'T a grasshopper.....and also make sure to lay lots of eggs so that there are millions MORE grasshoppers....and only a handful of teens can figure out how to stop it......there's humor and sex and violence......what more could you ask for?
Finally got around to reading Legend; which everyone is talking about.....and though I may not read the rest; I do understand the appeal. It's exciting reading with action happening non-stop.......and maybe one of these days I'll get around to reading the next one......but if not, at least I won't feel so out of the loop.....=)
