Series: The Unwritten (#4)
Tommy drops through a portal and finds himself a minor character in Moby Dick and ends up being swallowed by a giant metaphor, alongside Jonah, Sinbad, Pinocchio, and Baron Munchhausen.
Now I get it. The root of Tom's power is finally explained, and in a fashion that doesn't explain all the mysteries in the story.
This series is idiotic with occasional flashes of brilliance that compel me to keep going. It's a book-about-books that seems to have been written by people who don't read.
Ugh, this series just fills me with SO MUCH DELIGHT.
