#TheColossusRises: Meh. More like fast food than home cooking…

Meh.

Another Middle Grade adventure that copies from the ones who came before and actually did it right.

Like so many in the genre, the characters have no layers, the story has no meat, the resolutions are premanufactured, and the plot is holy enough to be religious.

There is some fun to be had, it’s not all bad. The story is more fast food than home cooking, but I suppose that’s what kids like better anyway. I won’t be continuing the series, but if my kids are interested I’d be happy to recommend it to them.

Happy Reading!
