Do Not Open Until...part 2

Last Thursday, 9/30/10, the mailman came to the door to deliver a package that would not fit in the mailbox.  Across the package was a LARGE sticker stating, "DO NOT OPEN UNTIL 10/5/10."  When the postman handed the package to my son, who had answered the door, said mailman made sure to mention that we were not to open the package until the 5th.  And this is the warning that my son passed along to me when he handed me the package.

And then I laughed at the child.  (Okay, so maybe I'm not the nicest mom sometimes).  Seriously?  Can the postman really tell me not to open the package?  I knew what it was...a book.  And I'm sorry, but there is NO way you are keeping me from finding out which book it is.  (See the
first post on this topic from a few weeks ago). 

So, what was the book?  If you noticed the book cover attached to this post, then you already know..."Behemoth" by Scott Westerfeld.  YEAH!  This is the sequel to
"Leviathan" and is not officially released until the 5th, hence the need for the warning label.

By the way, I think I've traumatized my son by ripping open the package with complete disregard for the official warning from the postman.  I still think that the mailman was being funny and my son didn't pick up on the sarcasm.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Did you read "Leviathan?"  Are you excited for "Behemoth?"
