I don't like it much either. In fact, I think I've only read it once or
twice (as opposed to dozens of times for the other books). I think I
found the plot at once confusing and unbelievable, and the Aunt Maria
character was just too overdone. Hmmm. Maybe I should reread it and form
my opinion more thoroughly.
