I tried to like this book but just couldn't get into it. I do admit I didn't even read more than just past halfway, at which point I actually gave up on trying to like the book anymore. I just couldn't make myself keep reading it. I do want you to know that is very rare indeed for me not to read a book to the end. I just didn't click with this one.
I stumbled upon this book purely by accident. When I started to read it I was a bit bored by it..... fortunatelly I paid closer attention and was facinated. A very rewarding read... well worth continuing to the last page. Well worth looking for, ordering, and planning to read the other two following books in this short series. You will definitely enjoy the trip to Finny's Nose - which is not at all what you might think. I was totally suprised and loved it.
