Couldn't finish this one...
Wow, where to start? This book had so many rave reviews that I was looking forward to reading it. Chapter after chapter, slogging through pointlessness, I returned to re-read the reviews to see what I was missing. The writing style is poor. Short choppy sentences, which would have you thinking the writer is trying to create suspense, to build up to....anything...but no, that's just how the book was written, it builds to nothing. The narrative is so stilted and detached, you are unable to develop any kind of relationship with the characters. I forced myself to read up to Chapter 27 and began skimming pages from that point on. Sadly, I was still able to keep up with whatever kind of plot there might be in this manner. I felt duped by the reviews on this one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Like another reviewer stated, it could have been so much better. Not enough prose and it reads worse than most children's books.
