I simply have to share this link.
I've written a review delineating why I loathe this novel so very much and have refused to read any of the other novels in the series.
(I also want to point out that all of my old posts seem to have been screwed up by some glitch in the blogosphere and instead of having nice paragraphs there are massive blocks of text that are unreadable. I had to go through the book review I wrote and try to reformat the whole damn thing. When I think of how many other posts are probably also an unreadable mess, I want to cry. If anyone knows why this happened, I'd love to have an answer, especially if there's some quick and easy thing I can do on my end to fix it. The thought of going through each post individually . . . I just don't have the time, especially when you consider there's more than one blog for me to "fix." I want to know what the hell happened, why, and what can be done to easily return all those old posts to their former state of clarity.)
