Couldn't agree more with this statement. As a whole TBIFOS was the better book. More interesting story, characters grew and mattered, things weren't just silly to be silly (all of the time)
I also had problems with the ending. The magic Jesus painting that shot lasers out of his eyes was a little much. Would have like a better way of dealing with Them. There were a few other things I would have liked more explanation on, like Carlos, but I thought it was all pretty great. Didn't ever feel like a chore to read.
Falconer stuff at the end was very funny with how they settled on the book deal. The wiener to stop the AC 130 was good too.
Thanks for suggesting the books Danny. There is no way I would have read either if you didn't back them. They are certainly not for everyone, but I liked them. Now I should watch the movie
