I enjoyed this book. It changes perspective - which I normally hate, as I like one character more than the rest and want to just read his or her sections. I *almost* managed to read this entire book in order, though. Please be aware that there is some strong language in the book. SPOILER (Also there was very much unnecessary sexual tension).
This is the best book I've read in a long time. Think "The Mysterious Benedict Society" with a twentysomething protagonist on a mission.
I was sooo impressed with the scenes that the had to remake so that they matched the first movie. I hate the fact that while Jennifer gets dragged into the adventure, she is drugged during the majority of the action because Doc is dumb. Also, the new actress for Jennifer threw me a bit. It's a good movie though. Be aware of the swearing for young ears!
This book is just... sad. For most of the book, you have no idea what the girls' issues are, and then when you find them out, no one does anything to help. The worst scene in the whole book is near the end, and there isn't even a happy ending. This book rates LOW in my book.
Maybe I'm too old to be watching this movie, but while I loved Aladdin and a couple of the songs (namely, "A Whole New World"), the sparse humor and antiquated animation techniques coupled with the weak plot did nothing to impress me.
