It was okay. Nowhere near as good as I had hoped, but good. I found Jill to be stereotypical whiny girl, and the Emerald Lady to be too easy to defeat to make it a good story. The only truly likeable characters were Eustace and Puddleglum.This was one of the first Narnia books I actually got excited about finishing simply because it was ending. Hopefully the last one will be better than this one.
