So I read this book when it was first published and really liked it. Then the whole world seemed to read it and adored it. Twelve years later I've returned to it to see if I missed something, because clearly the rest of the world loved it more than me. My rating stays the same - 4 stars. I really like it and can see its appeal to kids - a fresh and exciting world full of quirky characters- pure escapism. The writing is solid too.
Having read it the first time, I didn't feel inclined to read the sequels, and unfortunately I kind of feel the same now. We'll see...
