Convince us to read the book: This was not a good book. The plot was slow and things that were serious were too casual. Someone died, killed with his throat ripped out, and the characters said, essentially, "Meh." The characters did not really do anything brilliant. The things that they did were very undetailed and unsatisfying. There was no suspense. The problems were solved immediately.
Memorable or Forgettable: This book is forgettable because there is no detail to remember. There is no mental imagery to catch your attention. The actions are barely there.
Cover: The cover reflected the contents, but seems too childish. It turned me off.
Age Range: under 12
Quality: 2Q Needs more work
Popularity: 2P Only for special interest
