Been reading this book for a few hours each night the past three days. I should finish it tonight. I have to make myself stop reading at midnight so I can get enough sleep. I love these kinds of adventure books and have read many of them. I admit I have bawled in a couple of places in the book, which I usually don't like. Who needs extra things to cry about? Not me. But anyway, I'm really liking it and just thought I'd share.
