Yes, I haven't read it yet, but I've genuinely read positive things concerning the third book!

I was reluctant to read it as I wasn't keen on the second, but I may look out for it in future.

I'm not going to say it was great, but it was really solid stuff, and had a decidedly different flavour than what came before.
I picked up the oversized hardbacks- gorgeous, with great production values.
The slipcase sure looks pretty on the shelf.

To me it felt like the best bits of both DKR and DKSA, taken in a new direction. Something I really liked with is the meta aspect. It recognizes the influence both DKR and DKSA (which it had, but in another way than DKR) have had (for good and bad), and puts a twist on it.

Would be cool if Moore took things in a similar direction. But regardless, I'll be quite happy if Tempest delivers a twist to that's even half as insane as when Antichrist Harry Potter killing one of the main characters with lightning from his penis :P

Looking forward to it. The whole swipe Harry Potter being the Antichrist I felt was Moore being a bit cynical and a little snobbish.
