did not like it

I gave the first book of this series 5 stars, the second 3, and this only 1 star. It made me wonder if editors actually edit books once an author has had some success, because I don't see how any editor could have given this book the green light as is if they had actually read it. What was witty and clever and funny in the first book has become pompous and lecture-like and unfunny in the third, and I found myself skimming and skipping pages just to get to the end. Their 'precocious' child Ramses was completely unbelievable and unbearable and made me angry every time he opened his mouth (which was a lot). I was so excited about this series after book one, I am going to attempt the fourth book to see if the author has redeemed herself. Fingers crossed.
