Before Leviathan, Peeps was my favorite. I think a lot of Leviathan is fandom, though, and for the actual process of reading it, Peeps is probably one of the most interesting books I've ever read.

Leviathan bored me (don't hate me for saying that). I guess it's all the history intwined in the story and plot. I don't know. All I know is I couldn't get into it. :p As for Peeps, I don't think it was the most interesting book I've ever read. But it was still amazing.

That's pretty much how I felt about Leviathan too, Allie.

I just started rereading Peeps, and I'm falling in love with it all over again XD

And yeah I agree with you all on Leviathan. I don't think it was Scott-la's best work. And there is way too much hype over that book. (I mean, seriously. That's why I try to stay away from the Levi section of the forum. It gets scary sometimes. DX)

Yeah, I don't go there very often because of that and because I haven't read the last 2 books.

I think the thing about Leviathan is that the world is extremely complicated, so there's a lot of room for fanfiction and stuff. I feel like you like it more after you finish reading it than while you're actually reading it.

Yeah, I think it will get better for me when I read the trilogy all in one.

It also helps that it's very artistic, which leads to a lot of fan work and a strong internet fan base brought together through that.

I did love the art. I do think that this also could be a great set up for a manga series. BUT it also hurts the potential manga because the manga wouldn't have the same artistic style(as in the great detail) since everything would be pictures.

I agree, on both parts. I love the art, but I also love the other adaptations of it.

Yes, it was an accident. My comp was acting crazy and I had to keep backing and reposting until it went through.
