did not like it

I read this last night or should that be I attempted to read this last night after seeing the movie advertised.

I am now surprised at the 4 and 5 star reviews on this page.

I found I got bored of this by page 30 something, soldiered on but it really wasnt anything that got me interested. If anything I found the way it written highly irritating. And certainly does nothing to excite me about the mystery of a key.

I gave up by page 100 unfulfilled with what it offered. The waste of pages with 1 line shocked me and once I surrendered to Friday night tv, I found myself flicking through later pages to see many pictures. It made me feel I should have given it to my toddler instead. Certainly NOT a book I would recommend.
