The Sea of TrollsPosted: March 16, 2009
This was on a list entitled something like “Fantasy books every 6th-grader should read.” It was one of the few I hadn’t read (as a 6th-grader or otherwise), and one of the books on my list that was available at the library. Thanks to the Bwun’s voracious appetite, I was able to start reading Saturday and finish today.
The first 100 pages were miserably predictable and therefore boring. But I kept reading, because if I got through The Eye of the World, I’m convinced that I can finish almost anything. Eventually the story did becoming intriguing, although I disliked the protagonist and his twelve-year-old mind. Annoying.
The ending was sappy and bleh, despite a plot twist I ought to have picked up on and missed. I have no intention of reading the sequel (or the third book, if there is one). But at least I can cross it off my list!
Now 5% complete with my 2009 goal of reading 100 books.
