Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations
I finished Stormbreaker with a resounding meh. Way too many coincidences that diminished any sense of Alex being talented or smart enough to be worth MI6's time. Coupled with the stupid caricatures of villains, and I'm reminded why I never liked James Bond.
I understand they get better. I might try the next one after reading something else. Right now I think I'm going to try City of Bones and see if it fares any better. I have to admit to being a sucker for the beautiful covers the series boasts.
This is our small proof, not only that things can be done differently in this business, but that the greatest expression of rebellion is joy.
