The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell - Chris Colfer

This book has a lot of fans.


I am not one of them.


I wanted to read it for my kids, and I actually think they'll like it a lot. But for Dad, forcing myself through the dry, high-school-English-class writing was terrible. How this book has such a high rating is beyond me.


The things we do for our kids...


The story is clever and shows a lot of creativity, but the execution is rough--like tongue on sandpaper rough.


I won't be reading book 2, but I will be offering the series to my kids. If they turns their nose at it too, I'll come back here and let you know.


Happy reading!
