The Gathering

The Gathering - Isobelle Carmody Such a disappointment. Nathaniel is an annoying character. He's supposedly smart but he misses really obvious stuff. And the concept is stupid, slow moving and boring. It's like an idea for a short story that has been forcibly lengthened into a book.
And the most annoying thing about it was that because it's Isobelle Carmody and I know she's so clever it made me hang on all the way to the end. Waste. Of. Time.
Maybe... I would have enjoyed it more if I was a teenager, but I wouldn't really want a teenager reading it anyway. It tackles massive issues such as evil without ever really dealing with them. It kind of plays with horrible depressing themes for entertainment.
Really didn't like this one.
