it was ok
bookshelves: did-not-finish
Read from October 11 to 13, 2011

I was sucked in by the first few chapters of this book--who doesn't want more Harry-Potteresque adventures? Yes, it felt derivative but interesting enough and even amusing at times. But 1/4 of the way through my enthusiasm was fading, and 1/2 way through I realized I didn't like any of the characters, found their angst too precious and their drunkenness dull, and I didn't care what happened to any of them.

As a bonus, I hear there's a sequel, so now I can skip that too.
