did not like it
bookshelves: sci-fi, crap-just-crap
Recommended for: nobody
Read in January, 2007

I've always hated fantasy, and I still do. This book was disorganized to the point that reading it made my soul hurt. I guess part of that could have been trying to read it while sick, but even then, I didn't see that it really helped me any to put this in my brain. From what I understand, the books do get better as the series meanders along, but I'm not going to buy more. I might read them if I run out of anything else to read and happen to be in the “P” section of the library. Still, the fact it was written at the sixth-grade level did make it a quick read, and some parts were mildly entertaining. He definitely does a better job at collaboration than solo work, as Good Omens proved.

Michael Seabrook If you have always hated fantasy, and still do hate fantasy, why would you read fantasy?

Kyle Steele Better yet, I find it difficult to imagine that just about any book would deserve one star. The amount of time that goes into a novel should warrant at least two stars.

Rynae I'm with Michael...haha!
