On to the weakest book of the series! At least, I always felt it was the low point of the series. It picks up again in Children of the Mind.

I don't really remember, but the entire damn series is amazing in totality, anyways.

So far I'm pretty pleased with it.

Scared to start 2061 because 2010 was just SO AMAZING I don't want to be let down.

Reading The Road. Holy crap.

it's really good, and I like it, and it gives me things to think about, but it's really weird.

I'll agree with you on that last part, but I hated it. I didn't think it was possible for a book to be over-written and under-written at the same time, but The Road pulled it off.
