This review is pending. I have tried to read this book for TWO WEEKS but I can't seem to get passed page 58! I could not get in to this book. I tried. I really did.

I think what was holding me up is the excessive fluff talk in this book. I'm all for plot development, but please don't spend 40 pages talking about the same thing! I think I literally spent 40 pages reading various characters asking Toby (the young werewolf) if he remembers how he ended up naked in a dingo pen. Of course, Toby can't remember. Even I picked up on that after 20 pages! Ugh.

I think I've reached a part that might lead to something interesting, but I'm not willing to try finishing this book just yet. There are too many delicious books out there worth my time. No need to deprive them by drudging through this book any longer.

If anyone has read this book, I would be interested in knowing if it does get any better. Would it be worth trying to read again?

I was really disappointed by this book. I kept hearing how funny it was. I didn't see the humor. The 13 year old kid was annoying in my opinion.
I feel bad for giving one of my students a hard time about not finishing the copy I gave him. I had to apologize today, since I couldn't even finish the book!
