The bookworm was a downside to..

Yeah, a little funny, but nothing worth mentioning.

I agree. Could have been fantastic, but now they've turned it into a serious story. Darn, if they had just added a little more sparkle to the first chapter, and then either left it there or wrote the teacher's reactions to the essay, that would have been fine. Now there is all these new chapters which aren't funny at all

This story was a little funny at first, and had an awesome concept. However, the author had to go and make it serious, killing any chance of it being humorous. Also, I felt like the essay itself was just a rehash of the first couple books, which was a bit eh.

I'm going to have to go ahead and give it a 2.5/5.

Also, on a related note, the story is incomplete.

Light-hearted read, strong beginning but didn't manage to keep the pace up.

3/5

Definately would have been better as a one-shot. The grammar was fairly decent, but it wa lacking good characterisations. It just felt too sterile. 3/5.

There's no such thing as grave digging when it comes to library review threads. Re-visiting old stories and reviewing them is a good thing.

It does if the post made is short and pointless, and while his post was short, it said all that really needed to be said about the fic.

Also, at the top of the page while in any library forum, you'll find a link to this encouraging people to go through and review all the old stories to make sure that they're still library quality.
