's review

it was ok
bookshelves: boring, pirates


The letters and notices at the end of each chapter seemed interminable. I started to dread the end of the chapter because of them (then I started skipping them, tralala).

This was too unbelievable and ridiculous, and coming from me, that's saying a lot. I mean, Hilary's own father doesn't even recognize her? I don't care how detached you are. You'd recognize your own daughter.

Besides that, I don't know if I'd want my hypothetical kids reading a book in which the heroes say, 'We are always on the hunt for vengeance,' and 'I can't be virtuous.' (Paraphrased. I don't have the book on me.)

The book was hilarious though. I laughed forever at the Friendly Vegetable part.
