I’m afraid I get this pretty frequently because I’m an outspoken critic of the Inheritance Cycle. Either I should shut up because I clearly don’t know how hard it is to write a book, or I’m jealous of someone whose work I find flawed and unimpressive. Couldn’t be that I actually made valid points! So yes, critics of the critics, assign me attitudes as empty as your own if you can’t be bothered to counter my points. . . .
