The Magnificent 12: The Call
I was really looking forward to reading The Call by Michael Grant. I had read positive things in a blog (must be more critical about which blogs I read) and was psyched.
I enjoyed the first fifty pages, and told others good things based on the book's beginning.
I can't remember when my attitude about the book changed, but I lost enthusiasm sometime before page 100 and had to force myself to finish the book. (In retrospect, I probably should have abandoned it.)
I'm not sure why my feelings about it changed. It might have been the alternating chapters between present and ancient past or the humor that didn't make me laugh (or smile). Hard to say....
