I absolutely devoured the first three books in the series. Desired to pounce on the next and read it, but alas I had to wait a seemingly long time for it to appear. Appear it finally did. I rushed out and secured my very own copy. I then was distracted with other things and put Heartless off for a few other books. Finally, and oddly somewhat reluctantly, turned to it.
I finally feel what some have stated they feel when attempting to read books in this series. Somewhat of a "who cares", "blah" kind of feeling. I finished the book, finally, though slow was my reading.
