it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy

Disappointing. Protagonist has lame taste in music- I would have prefered if the author just wrote: 'he put on his mp3 player and started running.' Characters from the Fionavar Tapestry show up, then do next to nothing. I Listened to this as an audio book. The woman narrating it made the teenage characters more annoying than if I had read the book.
Maybe I'm overly venomous because Kay does this weird thing about half way through the story where he just drops the charcter Kate from the plot. She is active and involved in the opening acts, then gets downgraded to googler and love interest at the midway point. And I liked her way more than main character, Ned.
