    Nimmo is so much better than this.

    I'm a huge fan of the Charlie Bone series, however I really didn't like Griffin Castle all that much, for starters, it's very difficult to enjoy a read when you deeply dislike the main character, she was an obsessive posessive maniac on her way to become a total psychopath. She got her step father mutilated (those little stone animals of hers that "would do anything for her, except kill... FOR NOW"), and never even once she showed any trace of remorse. She became engrossed with the house, the stone animals, and the family living downstairs, it seems that in her own twisted version of the world, everything the she zeroed in on had to belong to her.
    Clearly there was nothing to like in a capricious peevish main character, and I also disliked her mother, a spineless lame excuse of a mother that wouldn't stand for her own daughter.
    Good thing that I didn't judge Nimmo by this book, or I wouldn't have read Charlie Bone, which is the exact opposite to The Griffins Castle.

    A Pretty Good Read

    "Griffin's Castle" by Jenny Nimmo is a good read, although the ending is pretty sad. Do not read this book if you want to be laughing and smiling by the time you get done with it. Over all, it is a pretty good read!
