did not like it

This is the fantasy book for those that do not like fantasy. This book was built up to be the best fantasy book of the decade. I've never been more let down. This was a yawn-fest from start to.. well I couldn't even finish it, it became too tedious. I stopped reading 3/4 of the way through.

I don't even require much to enjoy a book, I can get down with the dresden files which is the least pretentious fantasy around, but this.. this boring.. cliche mess tears at the core of my being.

Young orphan boy goes to magic academy.. with his luxurious flowing red hair, out smarts everything and everyone.
