When I read this book as a kid because let's face it I would not read this book as an adult because I don't want to waste my time on it. I did not like this book at all. I wasn't sure what the appeal was? I could understand people wanted creepier stories, but read Neil Gaiman if you want creepy and funny stories. I did not like any of the characters, the humor was not that funny, and honestly how did this series get so popular when I was a kid? I just don't know.
