Haha, but it is legit criticism. I don't see how anyone could like any of the characters. They're all terrible past the third book. The length is ridiculous too. Even making it 8 books would have been much better.

Also, you said you have read them since the beginning. I think a lot of your love may be from a nostalgic point of view. If someone my age, 27, starts them it is going to be nowhere near as enjoyable as they would be if a 13 year old starts them.
