    I’m not sure who reads this, but I’m excited to finally be able to say something. I’m currently 17, but I have had “The Nature of Balance” since I was probably 6 or so. I always used to try to read it when I was younger, and I recently found the book again and got to read through it. This book is nothing less than my favorite, and I’ve been trying to find a way to contact someone about making it into a moive. I’m extremely glad to see that it is in the process of being made into one too, I think it will make the perfect “horror” movie. =)Tim Lebbon has been my inspiration to write what I write all my life, even though I didn’t understand what the book was about when I was so young. Thank You!!
