On the Fence

As I listened to this book, I had mixed feelings. Even now, I am not sure how I feel about this book. Overall, the main plot concept is refreshing original. So, it's not a total waste of time. However, I feel a lot of the book focused on a lot of strange, mean and down-right weird people verses a few quality characters. After a while, I even didn't care about the so-called "heros"of the book because they were not that lovable or developed fully. The character development was unbalanced, and the plot had too many needless subplots that were not resolved well or at all. Overall, I felt the book left the reader hanging in the end (in an unsatisfying way). My ranking is more a 2.5 than the 3.

Over-hyped

I was expecting something special, what with the "next Harry Potter" monicker being tossed around. I'll admit, it took me and my kids a few tries to get into Harry Potter, but by the time they got to Hogwarts, we were hooked. With this book however, the characters and writing seem to fall a little flat. It may be an engrossing story at some point, but we listened to nearly 3 hours, and decided to call it quits. So far, not impressed.
