Erin Hunter is the pen name used by the authors of the Warriors novel series and the Seekers novel series.
Erin Hunter may refer to:
Kate Cary, author of Into the Wild, Fire and Ice, Rising Storm, Dawn, The Sight, Dark River, and Outcast
Cherith Baldry, author of Forest of Secrets, A Dangerous Path, The Darkest Hour, Midnight, Moonrise, Starlight, Twilight, Sunset, and Firestar's Quest
Tui Sutherland, author of Secrets of the Clans and Seekers: The Quest Begins
Victoria Holmes, editor and plot writer for each book
So when you are talking Erin Hunter you are talking about these four people.

It was specifically intended for use of the schooling progrm I was in.
Dear God, please erase these wretched memories.
I do not care if you can or cannot boil bacon in the hot springs.

I had to read it a few years ago in school for a Novel Study, and I hated it.
It is the only book I have ever hated, and I've read a fair number of books.
It was about a girl who entered a whole different world or dimension when she walked through some fog.
That was the most painful novel I ever had to read.

And yes, that did require caps.
Hmm. Here's a bit of a rant I made once--it was much longer than this, but I didn't want everyone to skip over it because it's so long.
Bella is your stereotypical Mary Sue hidden in plain sight. She's never had friends and always been a wallflower. Sob, pity. She's moving in with her father because she's just so epically perfect and willing to sacrifice her life because she cares for her mom so much. Sob, pity. She goes to a new school and she's epically popular in the first week and has guys hanging off her. OHYAYYYY!!!111! She describes herself as average (sob, pity), but that's obviously not the case with the guys hanging off her. Then Edward comes along. Yay! A vampire loves me because I SMELL GOOD and I am made EVEN MORE PERFECT AND UNIQUE BECAUSE HE CAN'T READ MY MIND! Then there's some strangled attempt at an actual PLOT near the end where Bella becomes a damsel in distress but is SAVED BY EDWARD YAY.
And don't get me started on EDWARD. Edward is perfect. He is described as "god-like", "perfect", and "beautiful" more times that I can count on my fingers and toes. He's super sexy, super strong, super powerful, and a super mind reader. And he's a vampire, which I think increases the character's perfection by 5 points just because that's what the majority of the teenage Internet population is fantasizing about right now. Then Meyer attaches some overprotectiveness at an attempt to make his personality a bit more flawed (which is perfect too, by the way). Ugggh.
And the writing! The writing was terrible. The first person made me hate Bella more. The descriptions were SO LACKING--I don't care what their hair color and eye color is! Tell me a bit of what they look like, a high forehead and pointed nose for example! Passively! Don't just sit there and say "Billy Bob had brown hair and blue eyes. He was tall." My goodness! And then Edward! Every time Edward came into the picture you seem to get out a thesaurus and look up alternate words for "beautiful"!
AHHH! I hate that book! Rawwwr!

I like a lot of books, I do hate Midnight Monday or something. I got 18 pages into it and fell asleep.

Not worth ANYONE'S time. Absolutely horrible. The writing is bland and drags out a stupid plot that has been done one too many times.

I liked Hatchet. Possibly the only book I had to read for school I enjoyed.
I disagree, I actually kind of liked Heartbeat. It wasn't the worst book I've ever read, it was more ok than really terrible. I Hate most books by Gary Paulson =/ most specifically The Hatchet series. The first book "Hatchet" was ok, but then it just went on and on with what, 4 more books? It just got pointless.
But only the first book. The follow ons were [s][h][!][you know]
I actually read twilight and god! I hated it more than Back Home.
With twilight you either love it or hate it. There seems to be no in between =/

Well it was written by Stephanie Meyer, what do you expect?
It was boring, and didn't make sense at all
No offence to Smeyer fans.
