LibraryThing Review

User Review  - Completely_Melanie - LibraryThing

DNF'd this about halfway through. Neither my son nor myself could get into this at all. It just seemed boring and hadn't really caught our attention by the time we reached the halfway point, so we felt no need to continue. We have plenty more books we need to read. Read full review
