    It’s not just you and your friends that tore through this series. A coworker of mine lent me the first book a few weeks ago and I ended up finishing the three in a matter of days. It’s just so well written I couldn’t put it down.

      Never meant to imply that non-estrogen folks couldn’t enjoy these books – just that I’m impressed that so many of my non-geek friends do.

    Mary and I have both read the trilogy and enjoyed them tremendously. I’m a bit surprised that they’re YA — they get very dark.

    For those who like this – i haven’t read it myself, but i think (from pieces like this) that i’ve got the vibe – might i recommend Cassandra Clare and (VERY highly) the work of Tamora Pierce, particularly the Alanna and “Protector of the Small” quartets.

    Pierce features very strong female characters who succeed in spite of being told that there’s no place for gurls in their chosen fields.
