No spoilers, I promise! Man, I was so stoked to find this on my doorstep last week. I ALMOST thought about taking an extended lunch break and just reading the whole thing then and there. But I managed to wait until later that night and had an absolute blast.
Compared with the previous two volumes, I’d say this one has amped up the action quite a bit. There were some shocking moments and plenty of the laughs we’ve come to expect. The social commentary still packs a punch, and I am just tickled pink everytime I pick up this story. It puts and leaves a smile on my face which is the kind of thing everyone needs more of in life, am I right?
All gushing aside, I will say that this is perhaps a weaker installment than the first two. I mostly think this is because the story/plot is progressing at a relatively fast pace here so we have less super awesome, silly character bits. But I still gave it 5 stars. Because it’s still more entertaining than almost anything else on this planet or the next.
Volume 4 should have been here, like, yesterday. Boo.

Somehow I had never heard of this series until this week. Now your’s is the second post on it! Obviously I need to check it out immediately.
Yay! I think I might participate in the #24in48 readathon this weekend, and this bad boy will be at the tippy top of my list!
Yay Saga! And readathons!!
I have been trying DESPERATELY not to buy more books, but my library’s copy of the third Volume hasn’t come in yet, and I’m not sure how much longer I can hold out…
Never hold out for Saga. NEVER.
