James Dashner is Cool

I just finished the advanced reader copy of "The Journal of Curious Letters" by James Dashner. The book doesn't come out until March, but I'm one of the few, the lucky, the important people who got a sneak peek. It pays to have friends in high places.

The book is great. It's a fantasy/adventure set around the theory of quantum physics and the idea that we can control reality by the strength of our desire. Our main character is Tick Higginbottom, a young man who starts to receive strange letters, each with a clue he must solve.

I'll be doing a full review for Families.com at the beginning of March, but wanted to get the idea planted in all your heads. This is the first of a series, and I will definitely be reading and loving every one of them.

Yay for James! And how lucky for you! I'm eagerly anticipating the day when it comes out and I hire a babysitter for my girls so I can dedicate the entire day to delving into it.

I'm very jealous. I don't wear jealousy very well. And green is no my color!

My congratulations to Dasher!!!

Ok, Tristi- I want to sign up for BIAM #2 and so I went to your challenge site and added my name to 'Mr. Linky'... the problem is that I can't seem to figure out how to leave a comment on Linky or your blog. HELP...I'm so confused. grrrrrr

Tristi, thanks for the nice words! I'm glad you liked it and I look forward to the full review. Let me know when you do it and I'll link my blog to it.

Tristi, I'll never know if you're lying or not because we're too good of friends, but I'm sure relieved you liked it!

The fact we are friends should tell you I wouldn't lie, James! I really liked it -- so there!

James Dashner said...

I gave my son that LOVES James' books my ARC for a Christmas present, so I haven't been able to read it yet. I am so looking forward to him finishing so I can read it. So you know I will be skipping that blog entry.
