I didn't think I would like this book - mainly because I felt like Meyer might be overrated and also, it's about aliens. Yeah, never been a fan of alien books/movies/etc. But this book really had me intrigued. It's not one I would read over and over, since it's pretty long, but I did enjoy the world-building and the tense situation build up. Meyer does a great job of getting you to see every side of the situation and feel something for the characters.
