There is a Reason This Book is Number 100

Ok, well, I'm surprised it even made the Top 100 most popular books of all time. Although a great idea of pitting brother vs. brother in a backyard magical forest called Ryhope Wood, I found the writing to be sporadic. At times it was interesting, then pages and pages went by and I couldn't remember what I had read before. The ending happened within the last 5 pages (which is normally when the end happens-at the end of a book) but for buildup to climax ratio (we're talking plot here!), not worth it.

I think I might still pick up the movie - maybe I'll get more out of it.
