Not really a review, just a few random thoughts:
I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did as the first in the series, it seemed a lot slower to me, and I found it far too easy to put it down and not pick it back up for several days (or weeks).
Far fewer of the stories translated over to the tv series this time, I'm not saying that's good or bad, I have no strong opinion on that at the moment.
At this point, I much prefer the tv show over the books, though the books do get a point in their favor for the way they handle Sidney's love life. I much prefer the character he ends up with in the books over the way it appears to be heading in the tv show.
