I didn't really have a problem with the English books. It were the Dutch books I had trouble reading :P But it might be because of my education. Ah well :P

At my school, a lot of people read AF...except I refuse to talk with them very long.
I'm just like that.
I like to talk to people who don't like the same stuff as I do...
Which explains why ALL my friends hate each other...I feel like a delicate block in between them, the only thing keeping them from ripping each other's hair out.
ANYWAYS, my friend is reading AF right now.
She's on page 40-something.
The librarian was talking about AF the other day to out AP Spanish reading class...(they have it in Spanish) but she made it sound cliche and dull.
This is her talking about The Opal Deception:
"So, he goes and kidnaps a fairy, but things don't go as planned..blah, blah. But that's the first book. I'm talking about the fourth book, in which they previously mind-wiped Artemis, and so the fairies come and say 'Yes, we are fairies. You've worked with us before. We need your help."
x0
The summary she gave it HAS GOT TO BE THE WORST ONE I'VE EVER HEARD.
She didn't even say what the plot was...but okay.
It's still sort of popular here.
Not as much as other book series, though.
The volatile surrogate for the salubrious ambit of seizing any just and warranted seclusion from even the nighest beau monde.

At least it's popular at your school. At mine, no one will read it. NO ONE!

Had no idea people hated AF.
I dont have that many friends to recomend it to, for various reasons... but I have gotten my best friend(same age as me) to read AF, and she has my other books too. She is going to read them when she has time....
I'm 22 and read AF last summer and I absolutely love him , dont think I'm too old...
As long as you like fantasy and reading about it I dont think you HAVE to be a certain age. But maybe its just me thats special...

Is there something I have missed out on..? Why cant you read AF if your religious?
I don't get it.

I don't get it either. I think some religions revolve around magic being a sin or something like that.

Catholics think magic is something from the devil. That's mostly what people think. I know it's not. I think you know it's not. Only they don't know it.

Yes, I am back! I have been super-dee-dooper busy. I just got back from vacation and I said to myself, "As soon as I get back, I am going to start posting on FG again. I miss those guys!" And I did miss you! I loved talking about AF with people who actually care! I might not be posting a lot in the next few days because there's still alot to do around our house, but I swear posts will start rushing in soon." Love you all!!!!

Dunno. Ask God. I think they think magic is something the devil uses to get what he wants.
