A Link To The New York Times Book Review Of The Dead And The Gone

Google was kind enough to provide me with it this morning, so for any of you who are interested, here it is:

The review looks very fine in print also!

Thanks for posting the link! I will be posting it on my library's front door!
Awesome review. I'm glad John Green was the one to write it.

I like the "superb characterization" part. I'm not sure many words are better than "superb" and characterization, in my view, is the most important part of a book.

Hi Mrs. Corbett and Wendy-

I like that "superb characterization" part also. My guess is my mother thinks of me as a superb daughter (although that ranking might be in doubt, since she has a toothache and I can't guarantee her an immediate trip to the dentist), but that's probably where my chances at superbhood begin and end.

I look forward to seeing the review on the library front door by the end of this week!

That is a great review, Sue. The kind that can really turn people onto a book. Thanks for sharing the link. I especially like the whole quote: "terrifyingly well-imagined futures and superb characterization".

Hi Jen Robinson-

I think I'm seeing a bit of a response to the review. At least my Amazon numbers are considerably better this afternoon than they were yestesday morning.

Not that I've been checking every hour on the hour. Nosirebob! Us superb characterization writers have other things to do (like check every hour on the half hour).
