Thomas is incredibly annoying(intentionally, I know) and leaves us with no one to root for or sympathize with.

I only managed to make it through the first book in that series.  The fact that he raped the girl who was helping him and there were never any real consequences and he didn't even seem to feel very bad about it turned me away, even though there were some cool elements to the universe.

Wow - I'm so late to this party.  Just yesterday, I finished a book called "Flyboy Action Figure Comes With Gasmask" - it was released into bookstores, and then later released as a free ebook.  Pretty decent, especially considering the price.

Before that, I read Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal.  I liked it quite a bit.

I've been alternating books, something random and then another book from a series I finally got all of after a long time.  The series is called Wild Cards, and if the people who made Heroes haven't read it, I'd be shocked.  The Wild Cards books are written by teams of authors (some very well known) and edited by George R. R. Martin.  If you can find them (think online), they're really good stuff.  They were written through the late 70s, 80s, and into the 90s.  There are 13 of them, and then a new trilogy was written later.  Sadly, if you try to read them starting somewhere other than the first book, you'll probably be pretty lost.

Quote from: "Dincrest"
The only think I found odd was
towards the end when everyone was flying on thestrals.  All the thestrals were visible.  Shouldn't Ron's, Hermione's, Ginny's, and Neville's thestrals been invisible since they couldn't see them?  Only people who've seen death can see thestrals.  

Well, you could argue that, but I'd say that
the books and movies are all sort of from Harry's point of view, so since he's seen death, he can see them, and therefore we can see them.  Regardless, the question isn't whether WE can see the thestrals, but rather if the [i]characters[/i] can see them.  Apparently through the magic of film, we can see them whether we've seen death or not.

I saw Hot Fuzz the other day, and it was great stuff.  Anyone who liked Shaun of the Dead would probably love it.  I'm dumb, so I didn't pick up on what was happening until they gave it away.  At first, I thought that
it definitely wasn't the supermarket guy because he was too obvious.
 Then I thought
it was everyone who works at the supermarket but no one else.
