Who was your favorite character and why? Grandpa John because even though he wasn’t all that remarkable, he was still a kind person.
Who was your least favorite character and why? Probably Jeb, Ebb and Flotsam because they were obnoxious.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? This book was one of those books that grabs you immediately but later on, only some parts are interesting while the others are a bit dull.
Was it plot or character driven? I would say more character driven.
What did you think of the ending? A bit too abrupt.
What was the moral of the story? Everyone is talented in some way, even if they do feel very untalented.
Favorite quote: “Some of us actually enjoy doing interesting things more than we enjoy doing long division.” –Eddie Grimlet
What would you change? The fact that it was all a bit too normal. I expected this book to be more remarkable than it was.
Who would you recommend it to? People who feel ignored or untalented or people who like pirates.
