Charmed Thirds

by Megan Mccafferty

At the end of my post about the first two books in this series (here), I expressed reservations about the direction in which to story seemed headed. Unfortunately, I was right. Even worse, it's not necessarily the plot per se that's disgusted me, it's the fact that the main character is so narcissistic and needy and pathetic. I think she has borderline personality disorder. I seriously doubt I will read the fourth book or, heaven forfend, the fifth. (BTW, did you ever hear of Fifth disease? It's parvovirus — which I always thought was a dog thing — for people. Gross.)
