But bad for people who enjoy good books. Or half-decent books.

I just don't think it would be a good recommendation for a pre-teen (though i dont think the age has been determined?). It's one of those books that you only really appreciate when you're older, in my opinion.

Chevalier's definition of "not for a pre-teen" seems to encompass many of my 9 year old's current favourites. YMMV, of course.
