Read in September, 2009

I saw this book recommended in someone's review of Hugo Cabret, so I got it through inter-library loan. I wanted to enjoy it, but I felt like the story was thin. There isn't a lot of dramatic tension, and there certainly isn't much compelling in the way of dialogue. The chapters alternate between comic book style (aka graphic novel) and prose with some illustration. That part is well done - the transition is always very smooth. But while this is the first in a trilogy, I have no desire to read the others. It's not that it's bad, it's just not very interesting.
