Comments: Shooting books about mice in a barrel

I, on the other hand, loathed the book. In addition to the things that you mention (and did you mention that it was really poorly written? Oh, you did.), there's the author's evidently total ignorance of medieval history, theology and politics.
It was particularly disappointing, as I had vague hopes that if I enjoyed the first one, I might enjoy the second, and perhaps the third, and maybe even the fourth, and possibly the seventh, and conceivably the nineteenth, and in theory even the umpty-'leventh, or whatever he's on now.
Have you tried Cornelia Funke? I loved Inkheart and am enjoying Dragon Rider even more.

Saying "on the other hand" makes it sound like I would disagree with you.

Well, and I thought that would make it fair and balanced.
