    I love this novel dearly, but I HATE it when Apple and/or iBooks updates the book cover for a movie tie-in. Why not appease true literature lovers for a change & change to cover back to the beautiful artwork the author intended. I never saw the movie, nor will I.

    I am a voracious reader, with fairly broad tastes. But I had to struggle through this entire book. And at the end, I still had no idea what the hell happened. Don't waste your time or money.

    This is by far my favorite novel... I downloaded a copy for my iPhone so I can re-read it on the go. Unfortunately, I noticed several typos in the prologue and in the first several chapters that were not present in the hard copy of the novel. I wondered if those typos were present in the first edition of the novel and this electronic version was a port of that and not the most recent edition, but the typos are not present in the hard copy of my first edition. I checked the Nook site and there are no typos present in that version. Has anyone else encountered this problem with other novels on this app store? Regardless, this is by far the best novel I have ever read and I encourage you to read it :-)

    My dad introduced me to this book when I was in high school and every time I read it it still captures my imagination and I can't put it down. Riveting.

    To me, this ranks above even John Crowley's wonderful works as a modern American Fantasy. The prose, the characters, the peoples, the winters of New York (and upstate) are pristine, breathtaking, alive, beautiful, and compelling. If you want a story full of transcendent moments, with characters of love and decency, this is a novel for you.
