1 . It was slow
Posted April 22, 2011 by Natalia , ConnecticutHonestly, I didn't like this book. What really turned me off the book was Sabrina. She was so irratating, constantly thinking Mrs. Grimm was bad. It was annoying to keep hearing this over and over throught the entire first part of the story. Not only was she irratating but she was naive to my point of insanity. She didn't believe what was right in front of her making the book extremely lengthy since half the time she was doubting the facts. This made the book longer in the sense of getting her to believe the truth. Also, to me the book was extremely predictable because of the way the characters acted. The conflict was easy to resolve, because you knew right away who was the villan, the plot, the rescue, EVERYTHING. At some points the story was so irratatingly similar I skipped several chapters just to avoid boredom.
