Well, it finally happened. I stumbled across a book in the Rhetoric level of Year 2 that I simply didn’t care for (The Hawk that Dare Not Hunt By Day by Scott O’Dell) . It wasn’t a terrible book and there certainly wasn’t any objectionable material it it, but it was a book that left me feeling like I had just wasted my time reading it. Thankfully, it is a quick read; I believe that I finished the book in less than 3 hours time. However, it wasn’t a book that really added anything to my life and it was a book that left me with far more questions than it had answered. It was the type of book where the characters behaved in a certain way that just didn’t make sense according to their sketches and you could never quite figure out why certain things happened.
Sigh. I am thankful that this is the first book that I have felt this way about since beginning my self-education endeavor with TOG. And, I know now that when my children reach this level of the program that we will not be reading this book.
