Reading the Leaves reviews Green [ Powell’s | Amazon | Kindle | Barnes & Noble | Borders ] — A bit of a mixed bag, but largely positive. Some interesting (also mixed) comments after the review, as well.

Thought experiment: imagine the reaction if Barney Frank praised a self-declared “left wing terrorist.”
