Too long ago...
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I read the books when they were coming out, one by one, but lost track around book 9 or 10, ten years ago, as I found it too repetitive. But when saw it on Audible, and knew the final book was there - I thought I would start over - I loved the story then, this was going to save my summer.
You can never go back.
The story just doesn't seem to catch me any more. Maybe it's the lack of individuality in the characters? There are plenty of main characters, but they don't grow, they are all stuck in eternal adolescence?
It was nice hearing the first book again, but I wont be buying the rest of the series.
