Default Should I or shouldn't?

There's a few of the Freedom books at the local 2ndhand bookstore, and I was wondering how essential are they? I've not read any yet, and I was wondering what unbiased responses I would get from you chaps.

Any comments?

You should. I especially like the first book, which is fairly self-contained, and Freedom's Ransom, which has some very familiar names in it for a long-term OKT member.

I grabbed two of the four there, including Freedom's Landing, and I'll pick up the other two later.

I'll start reading them tonight.

I read Freedom's Landing last night and enjoyed it. I had fun reading it, and will get the rest of the books before I read any more: I want to gulp them down in one burst!

Well now, I wouldnt read and read and go through the whole series at once. I would prefer to have a break in between, even to read two back to back is quite a lot unless you spread out your reading over several days (which is impossible with Anne's books innit??? )

Well, I could spread them out over 2-3 days, and that's no problem for me. I read from lunch time till midnight yesterday, and, apart from beinhg a bit tired from lack of sleep, I'm fine.
