One of the attorneys I work with brought her 11 year old son & 10 year old daughter to work with her this morning. Both are huge Harry Potter fans; so I shared your review of the Charlie Bone series with them. Now they've got their Mom talked into taking them to the bookstore on their way home so they can buy the books. So your review had an immediate impact on two kids' summer reading -- Good Job!

Best that could happen.
Thanks for letting me know.

I haven't read the first series you mentioned but I have read most of the Charlie Bone books. I liked them a lot. Definitely a good series. Have you read Eragon and Eldest by Christopher Paolini? I'm just finishing up Eldest. I liked this series although it is a lot thicker a slower than the Charlie Bone books. Have you read The Spiderwick Chronicles by Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi? I also liked The Edge Chronicles by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell.

I have Eragon but haven't read it. Part of the harvest last year. That reminds me I haven't been to half price books in a while. I read and liked The Spiderwick Chronicles. I thought it was a bit skimpy in each book. I have Edge Chronicles 1-4 but haven't gotten to them either. Right now I'm reading the fourth in Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series. It's ok. Simba really likes them but I just like them. The guys has too many flaws. There seems to be this movement in fiction to portray the hero as a flawed man. Sometimes the writers go too far. Butcher's kind of yacky and there's not much magic. Mostly Dresden moaning about the new shit storm he's put himself into. I read the first 3 last year and put the rest aside to read later. Now I'm on number four and Harry's in a shit load of trouble. Oh, my.I'd read Charlie Bone over, I won't read Butcher again. Life is too short. Time for lunch!
