YMMV / Woodwalkers

Go To

  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • Is Carag an Idiot Hero who tries his best to fight against Big Bad Andrew Milling or against other racist characters like the bully Jeffrey or is he a hypocrite who Wants a Prize for Basic Decency while doing too little to actually to something about his enemies?
      • Also, why has he refused to reveal that Jeffrey was behind the painting prank in book 4? Did he believe that Cortante deserved it? Or did he do it because he wanted to punish Jeffrey himself?
    • Advertisement:
    • Andrew Milling. Is he a racist who just pretends to help his allies so he can avenge his family more easily or a Well-Intentioned Extremist who truly wants to help woodwalkers?
    • Rebecca Young. Is she a liar who just made the stories about the woodwalker-gods up or is she just a racist woman with an A God Am I-attitude who is unable to accept that the past is over?
    • How much Jeffrey has changed after the events of the last book is also up to interpretation.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character:
    • Arula. She was build up to be one of the most important enemies of Andrew Milling but her actual appearance in the last book didn't influence much of the story.
    • A similar thing happened to Joe Bridger. It was implied that he hates himself because he's a shapeshifter but the book he appears in ignores his self-hatred to show the fight against the followers of Milling.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot:
    • At the end of book 4, Frankie Ellwood was kidnapped by some villains and the main goal of Carag and his friends during book 5 is to save him. This would've been the basis for an interesting plot- but for some reasons the book focuses on their school life and ends with Frankie freeing himself.
    • In book 4, Carag wants to tell the students of the Colegion La Chamba how evil the Big Bad actually is- but he doesn't do it because he fears that they won't believe him because he's not popular enough. He now spends the whole book doing exactly nothing to become more popular or doing anything about the popularity of Andrew Milling which only fueled the Alternative Character Interpretations about him
  • What an Idiot!: One day, Miro (who can turn into a wolf) joins the Clearwater High. Carag now fears that he will join the pack of the racist bully Jeffrey (who can also turn into a wolf). A normal person would've done everything to show Miro that he doesn't have to join Jeffreys pack just because wolves live like that in the wild- but for some reasons, Carag just ignores Miro for the rest of the book and even when he learns that Miro joined the pack he does exactly nothing to get him out of it.

How well does it match the trope?
