Yes, I did mean that I didn't like them. Having seen so many ravings
about both, I didn't bother to spell it out. I'll be interested to
hear your reaction if you do come back to Despereaux any time (though
it's nice to have company on _Inkheart_ either way). The only book I
can think of (atm, which doesn't mean much!) that I couldn't get into
and later came to love was Sabriel.
