Well, this book was interesting! The author wasn't kidding when she made the joke towards the beginning the of book that she basically wrote a very long winded version. Now, that's not a bad thing, and for her first novel written before editing, it wasn't bad. At times though, it was a little, for lack of a better word choice, boring. Now, don't get me wrong, I enjoyed reading it, enjoyed reading her comments through out the story, and enjoyed reading what the story could have been. It was fun to see kind of how that story blossomed into what we know as the actual fish tales. The way that she developed the story overall, changed the plot a little bit, and changed and grew the characters. It's kind of sad to be putting the fish tales to bed to say. I enjoyed reading the series and enjoyed getting to know and love the characters. I'm hoping maybe they will pop back into her head and urge her to write another story in the future!
