Meh, it was just okay for me. I've wanted to read Maggie Stiefvater for awhile and thought that this would be a good one to begin with. But, I felt that the narrative, though original for YA a bit boring. It involved a romance, but it didn't develop till near the end of the novel. Plus I couldn't understand why Shawn and Puck liked each other anyway, there was no real build up in my opinion. Stiefvater is an excellent writer though and I will pick up her other novels, but, The Scorpio Races just wasn't for me.
