I feel complete as a person now that I know WHY the Fullmetal Alchemist is called "fullmetal." I was immediately sucked into this story two brother alchemists who paid a huge price by defying the laws of alchemy and trying to bring their mother back from the dead. They are pretty bad-ass and I can't wait to find out what happens next. The story is quick moving and has lots of action. I am also able to tell people apart in this book (probably because one is a metal giant).
