50 page test. Ugh, nope, I just can't do it. The structure so far has been:
1. Mention of tiny plot point
2. Immediate reminder by author that this tiny plot point is hilarious because Quentin is a kid! A normal kid! See how funny that just was?!?
I know some people really enjoy the meta nature of these books, but it isn't done in a way that still allows for a satisfying story. Not for me. If I want Narnia or Harry Potter I'll just reread those.
I wish I could buy a print of the cover art, just the same. It is the cover that drew me into the first one as well.
