Under Wildwood Viral Book THANK GOODNESS IT'S OVER!!!!!!!!!!!I don't know why I kept reading. I normally take pride in giving up on a book I'm not enjoying. I am in charge of my reading life! I don't let guilt propel me! There are too many great books I'll never read to waste time on those I don't like. Why did I keep on reading this one even though I was not enjoying it?1. I enjoyed the first one. I assume it's going to be a trilogy and I like reading trilogies. 3 is the magic number!2. I like the look and feel of the books. The illustrations are lovely.3. It's a mythologized version of my own city, nearby neighborhoods and the Forrest Park wooded area that crowns Portland.4. My husband bought it for me for Christmas. I like getting books for Christmas.5. It seemed like I would enjoy it if I would just straighten up my attitude.I was bored. It was tedious. There was no heart. I thought the underworld would be more like an underworld (more banished souls and/or a devil character and less moles.) The Portland references (including the Shanghai Tunnels) and a nod to our Pabst Blue Ribbon hipster culture only made me roll my eyes. And now it's over and it was such an unsatisfying non-conclusion, which means that there will be no closure unless I read the 3rd and final installment. I don't wanna. I'll read the Cliff's Notes but that's it..

The best Kindle Under Wildwood 4.5A rare second book in the trilogy that is better than the first. This book benefited from having more characters than the first.
