Read in July, 2007

This book failed to impress me. It's intended for adults, so it's much less creative than the chidderbooks about dragons. It's trying way too hard to be clever and young and fresh.

The writing style reminded me of Dave Barry. Desperately self-conscious attempts at humor that just don't do it for me...with an extra layer of desperation in attempting to conform to a fantasy genre.

Borderline insulting, if you're a fan of the fantastic books this one parodies. (I hated the reference to The Princess Bride. You don't mess with the perfection that is iocane powder.)
