Marked Chapter 22
So, we’re starting chapter 22 now and this book only runs to chapter 29. And we just learned the “plot”, as thin as it is, in chapter 20. Two thirds of this book has been about Zoey. Zoey doesn’t like … Continue reading

Marked Chapter 20

Marked Chapter 16
We’re now past the halfway mark, at least in terms of chapter numbers. At this point, something should be happening. At the very least, PCK should be hinting at a plot. Rowling didn’t focus strongly in the Sorcerer’s Stone throughout … Continue reading

Marked Chapter 15
I’m still really hating how cheap PCK is being with Elliott. He hasn’t really done anything to deserve scorn from Zoey aside from insulting Damien. Considering how much trouble he’s gotten into just for being disinterested, I’d say he’s just … Continue reading
