For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, the New York Times has reviewed TBOE...
[] (free registration may be required)...And it's a pretty darn good review, on the whole. (Getting your book reviewed by the NYT is always better when they like it!) Congratulations!

Edit: PS, and thanks to trueblue for pointing it out...the review does contain spoilers, and sorry, I haven't figured out the link thing yet.

Thanks Ffran.
I had to skim it though, I hate that the NY Times always tells you half the book.

easy click version for the lazy or copying and pasting impaired.
One of those would be me. ;)
