this book is one of the most boring books i have read. there are only a few book i have read that are as boring as this book. although there were good parts in the book the magority of the book was uninteresting. i only own this book because i own the series and some of my favorite parts of the story line are in this book. if you are going to buy the series i recomend not leaving this one out because there are some important parts in this book that are refered to in the other books.
