I read Dean's newest book this last Monday (I couldn't stop reading it until I was done). I have to say it's one of his best in the last ten years or so. It was so nice not to be disappointed or even semi let down by the ending. It's seems that so many times the dramatic buildup would fizzle out at the end; not so with this book.
I mailed it overnight to a friend of mine in Texas so we could talk about it. Since I'm a little impatient, I thought I'd register on here in hopes that some of you have read it.
Oh, and even though I just registered I'm not really new. I've occasionally read the forums on the site for quite some time.
