ahef1963 : Somehow I was led to believe that this book was amusing; I don't find child neglect and abuse funny so I hated it.

Explications
Cecrow : The first two trilogies I really liked, but I'd agree the last set didn't add anything.
Sammystarbuck: 7 pages to describe a tree. 7. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing, and that falls under that heading. also, don't like Thomas at all, which is awkward in an MC

Explications
hipdeep: I liked the first 3 books well enough (actually Azkaban was quite good) but this is the one where I found myself pleading with Rowling to get to the dang point already. I thought it was too long by a third.

ahef1963: Did not like. Possibly because my husband had just left me - I probably wouldn't have liked any book.
