Oct 07, 11

bookshelves: utter-shite, fantasy
Read from August 22 to September 06, 2011

The story of a quasi-sociopathic high school cretin who mouth-breathes his way into an exclusive fantasy club of anhedonic wizards - replete with bad writing and worse story-telling.

Sophie I'm really enjoying it :) I mean the fox sex was a bit weird but I don't understand the strong reaction to it.

Simeon It's just the main character's attitude. I guess you should keep reading and see what you think.

Brittany Leigh Mouth-breathes. Love it.

This book is a piece of shit.

Andrea lol, I've just started the book and already hate Quentin. Your review, however, is quite likeable;)

Melly Agree. shockingly self indulgent, uneven, pointless and just deeply weird.

Ben Liking b/c I learned a new word here.

Kristen hahaha! Such a short review, but so damn spot on!

Stacey Millikan Bacigalupo yep. you nailed it.

Andrew O You give more meaning in one paragraph than the book did. In fact the book felt like a pointless exercise in how to annoy readers.

Kate exactly

Travis Blake Thank you - for putting into words what I couldn't. This book has frustrated me to no end, the characters are incredibly unlikable, and (even worse) so unrealistic. Grossman is a terrible writer and probably a bad person too.
