« Nonsense from the literary elite | Main | 3 Favorite Books of 2007 »

December 10, 2007


I've read these books since the beginning, and have found them usually very good (the odd one is less so). They do not degenerate into mechanical formula as is the case with some series when the author breaks through into top-selling status. I'd say that they improved steadily for the first few. So despite the odd wobble I am looking forward to T. (It seems a long time since S!)

I'd read them for a while and then given up, but you have said clearly what a few other reviewers have implied - so I think I'll give T a chance. Maybe she sat back, caught her breath, and came at this one with new energy. Thanks for the reco.
