Review by soybean-soybean
nyeaa..it was just alright..i just couldnt help but get somewhat irritated every once in a while because the main characters didn't seem believable to me..compared to the kind of books i've read in the same genre and age bracket, this one appears to still have a lot of catching up to do..the kids are so hopeless most of the time and their adventures on the other side of the mirror were so tame and short...the author didnt seem able to properly convey the nuances of whatever situation the kids were in..however, that notwithstanding..i'm still willing to give it another go by continuing to read the sequel to this, in the hopes that it might improve..but i still cant help but feel that these books were written out of an attempt at creating a moneyspinner, rather than from the passion of adventure.. i'm sorry if it seems harsh, but there it is..thats my two cents
