Format: Paperback
First part of an excellent trilogy - Go Saddle the Sea; Bridle the Wind; Teeth of the Gale

Orphan Felix Brooke decides to leave his Spanish home to travel to his father's family in England. On the way he has many (scary!) adventures. Set in the 19th century, and as quirky as any of Joan Aiken's stories. Suitable for children 10 plus? Appealing to boys.

The Felix trilogy belongs to my most loved childhood books and it's been a great pleasure to be able to get these books via amazon (they are out of print unfortunatly) and re-read them. Joan Aiken was a fantastic author and her stories combine suspense, fun, important reflections about life and all that on a historical background which she studied well and is able to make become alive when you read her books!

Well-paced and whimsical 11 July 2000
By Jane Massey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Aiken is in top form in this (sadly) out-of-print children's novel. Felix, the main character, is engaging without being perfect; the minor characters are drawn with an eye to the amusing improbable detail. As usual, the plot is wild and rapid, but the pace is steady enough to make it all feel satisfyingly real . . . The trilogy (Go Saddle the Sea, Bridle the Wind, In the Teeth of the Gale) shares many stylistic characteristics with her other alternate history series, which begins with The Wolves of Willoughby Chase. In some ways these three books are even better, being a little slower and more coherent as a single narrative. Of side interest to Austen fans is Aiken's use of _Lady Susan_, which appears occasionally throughout the story. I won't spoil the details, but the series makes a nice companion read.

Another winner by Joan Aiken 3 Feb. 2007
By octobercountry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Here's another of Joan Aiken's "ripping yarns"---no one could write this sort of adventure story like she did! The plot is summed up in the editorial review above, so no need for me to go into detail. I'll just say that it's a very enjoyable read, certainly. I enjoyed the construction of the story: the book has a bit of the feel of the early Victorian magazine serials. In fact, the style of the first-person narrative put me very much in mind of Dicken's "David Copperfield." Each chapter is almost a self-contained adventure of its own, another step in Felix's journey from his grandfather's home in Spain, to his paternal father's family near Bath. (It's unfortunate that I know almost nothing whatsoever about the geography of northern Spain. I think if I had been better able to imagine what sort of landscape Felix travels through, it would appear more vividly in my imagination. Aiken perhaps is not a writer given to lengthy descriptions of the scenery. But that's not really a complaint about the story at all, just an observation.) The novel certainly is a exciting yarn---such adventures Felix has! While this book is a complete tale in itself, once you have finished it you will surely wish to read more about Felix; his adventures are continued in "Bridle the Wind."

I wonder if this story is, in fact, set in a sort of "alternate history" universe just like the Aiken's "Wolves of Willoughby Chase" series was. Because I found it interesting that Felix, throughout the journey, reads passages from a book of his father's titled "Susan." It becomes obvious that this book is, in fact, none other than a Jane Austen title---though in "real life" Austen did not have a book published by that name. It isn't spelled out at all---I daresay a lot of people reading this book wouldn't give a second thought to what Felix was reading---but I got a kick out of noticing that...

The dust jacket illustration on my old copy is very mediocre, though---a rather dull painting of a boy riding a mule by the seaside on a sunny afternoon. Honestly, it makes the novel look like some sort of animal story, not a hair-raising adventure at all. I see that these books are going to be reprinted soon, and the new paperback designs are considerably more exciting and dynamic than the old hardcovers were.

Go Saddle the Sea is predictable 7 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Go Saddle the Sea is about a boy called Felix. It is quite exciting but predictable. A dying servant gives him a package. He cannot make out what the writing on a piece of paper is...
