    I've read it and found it fantastic, though disturbing at times. I could barely put it down. I've read his other two books as well.

    I've been reading Lawrence Hill's Someone Knows My Name (also called The Book of Negroes). It's gripping and a great read so far.

    I'm re-reading Under the Never Sky, and my opinion of it hasn't changed--it's good, but not the best dystopia out there.
    I can't think of any witty name quotes, so this will have to do.

    I've read that! I liked it a lot but I did have to yell at the main character a few times. I understand completely why she views all white people and their motives with scepticism but from a reader's perspective, hearing her have the same reaction every time got really tedious x_x

    Why did they change the title? I thought it was named after the real book/ledger, which I think was actually called 'The Book of Negroes'.

    Yeah, I loathed it at the start. Once Death shuts up it gets better

    Historically set romances....I'm not into that genre, but from what I've heard/what the blurbs are, I think some classics might be romance....
    I can't think of any witty name quotes, so this will have to do.
