The Black Cauldron

Since I'm a fan of the fantasy genre, you would think I would be a shoe-in as a fan of Lloyd Alexander. I tried reading The Beggar Queen a year or two ago. That didn't go well. Or should I say it didn't go at all, since I only read the first page.

I did better on The Black Cauldron. At least I finished it with *ahem*skimmed*ahem* sections. It's not bad. It's not good either. I got confused with the timeline of events a lot. Probably because I spaced out while reading and thus my brain did not take in the meaning of the words my eyes were seeing.

Oh well. I tried. Sorry, Mr. Alexander.
