it was ok
bookshelves: 2010, american, fantasy, ya, written-in-2000s
Read from December 17 to 21, 2010

It was very entertaining with good dialogue and writing and I liked the jokes and literary references.

But somehow it failed to captivate me the way other young adult/fantasy novels did, such as Hunger Games and Vampire Academy. To me, it lacked some originality... and it seemed there was too much crammed into the fantasy world, too many strange creatures and gadgets that were never really thoroughly introduced (as they are in e.g. Harry Potter).

It was a quick and somewhat fun read, though, but I don't know if I'll read the next in the series...
