Hrm. Incoming rant warning and slight spoilers.
I’m probably one of the last people to read this series. I don’t normally like reading translations, ’cause I feel like something gets lost, but my mom sent me these two books (the third is not out in paperback yet, and I just got it today from the library), so I figured I should give them a try. Besides, the American version of the movie is coming out for Christmas with Daniel Craig, who’s totally yumtastic, so I have a good excuse.
