I did read your review because I've read some other good ones on this book and wanted to see what you had to say about it. Also, the cover and/or title themselves didn't grab me so I needed to read the reviews to see if this would be a book I'd enjoy.

I totally read your review for two reasons. I wanted to know what the book was about and your opinion of it. I wanted to know if this was a book I would enjoy. I am always scouting a great book. :) Your review definitely made me want to know more. :)

I did read your review. I liked it, especially your working around the various definitions of raven. I can see there's a bird on the cover, obviously, but it sounds like there are many more meanings in play.
Thanks for the entry!

I read your review and rating. I have to say we try twice a week to win the lottery and this would be a total horror for someone who won. This book sounds so suspenseful. If I don't win it well I'll pick it up at Amazon. Sounds like edge-of-the-chair-read-all-night stuff.
