Julie I hated these books! Especially Will the little know-it-all. Grr.

Am I alone?

Rindis | 18 comments I generally liked them. Been long enough that I don't remember who the "know it all" would be.

However, I discovered one of my 'hate buttons' thanks to this series. I do not care for stories that end with the character(s) forgetting what happened. As a book on plot put it, stories either involve the main character learning something, or failing to learn something - hard to do if you forget what's happened. So when the bulk of the cast forgets everything at the end of the last book, it wrecked the entire series for me.

Chelsea (chelsealane) | 2 comments I'm going to have to second the love!

(and I'm looking forward to the movie, even though I'm sure it will do a terrible job.)

Jordan | 2 comments you are not alone. hated the kids, always felt that cooper was trying so hard to write a CLASSIC, but was never sucked into the stories, and Gumerry is my least favorite name ever. it makes me think of an old man with no teeth. gross.
