  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 5/23/2012

    " Not nearly as good as the other three. Like Harry Potter, Charlie Bone seems to grow more selfish, spontaneous, and quick to anger as the series goes along. The plot also seemed fairly jumpy at parts. The story was good, but I thought it could have been executed much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jocelyn Lee | 5/8/2012
