This book is simply astounding. I see a ton of reviews here stating this book drags on takes a long time to read blah blah blah. I stayed up for TWO HOURS reading this book! It is astounding! The characters are totally realistic, the aliens are scary, and, even though the aliens come out of people's rear ends, it is even realistic (At least in a sense) because the aliens wouldn't understand that it is gross! Sure, people also complain that the aliens live inside people's bodies is an idea already used, but this movie makes Alien seem like Winnie the Pooh.
Like my title, people say this book drags on, at least it has a purpose. Sure, some of the parts in this book are insignifigant, but at least it's fun to read. Harry Potter 5 dragged on and had no purpose. One of the chapters were entirely about homework at Hogwarts, but here, it would usually be about Duddits and, in the end, it actually had an impact at the end of the story.
I simply love this novel and I'm going to recommend it to everyone I know. And, I say, give it a shot. This book is simply astounding.
