Deep blue...I wrote about Jennifer Donnelly's Deep Blue, which, well, I hated:

In reading the Prologue to Jennifer Donnelly’s Deep Blue—a description of a group of water witches swimming around, chanting rhyming couplets about six chosen ones with disparate talents who will have to band together to save the world—I got the distinct impression that not only had the book been specifically written with a film adaptation in mind, but that I had already SEEN said movie many, many times before.

It's rare for me to walk away from a book without anything nice to say.

Sadly, this is one of those times.
