did not like it
bookshelves: fiction
Read in April, 2009

Oh my goodness this book was annoying. I brought home an advanced reader from work and was so excited to have snagged the newest Shannon Hale book. But I barely made it through. The characters glib exchanges and cheesy moral quandaries drove me nuts. I had to reread Goose Girl to remember why I like this author so much (and Goose Girl is still wonderful). I'm amazed the two books were written by the same lady. Am I crazy or was this book the pits?

Susan No, you're not crazy. I finished the book with a lot of effort, wondering when it would get better.
