Gah! I hate when books end like that. I'll definitely be picking up the next one (and there better be a next one, right? Right?) :) I LOVED that there was a part at the end regarding Echo/Joseph where I totally was not expecting it. Books so rarely surprise me nowadays it seems. I loved the witty language stuff and I liked reading the things that the future misinterpreted about our time. I liked how clever this book was - in the hidden symbols, the language and everything. Too bad I'll have to wait forever for the next one to come out. Still, even with the wait ahead, it's one I'd recommend.
