Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First of all it's a little annoying I can't review Sabine's Notebook because Amazon considers it 'part of a set' but the feelings I had for that were pretty much the same as the first book.

This is the last in the trilogy and again in trying so hard to be different and an unusual and beautiful format, the plot is seriously lacking. Again, took me ten minutes to read, and the sudden introduction of the 'villain' is a little amusing rather than scary. The book lacks depth; even the letters could be longer and more detailed.

Not to spoil anything but the ending is completely random and feels like the author's attempt at fobbing off the reader as he can't be bothered to keep the stories going. Leaves you wanting more but not in a good way.

Disappointed as I read so many reviews and was looking forward to this trilogy but they are just pretty to look at and flick through. Give them a try, but maybe borrow them instead of buying.

I must congratulate the sellers for their consideration following my problem and criticism which was quite beyond their control. Their attention was second to none and I would recommend potential customers to purchase from them with confidence. Thank you!

Amazingly enthraling and engaging, wonderfully illustrated. 7 April 1999
By eringriffin@mindspring.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Nick Bantock needs to be congratulated for his amazing work in the Griffin and Sabine triology. His superb illustrations bring an intriguing story to life. Watching the correspondence of Griffin and Sabine unfold in these wonderful books is like watching a private moment unfold from the window. As you peak in at these two wonderfully real characters you not only can't wait to turn each page to see what is said but what is drawn. The style of these books was so well done they deserve the highest recognition. The realism used to create actual letters and postcards between Griffin and Sabine for the reader to take out and hold only adds to this amazing experience.

The entire triology gives possibility to the unbelievable. 23 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Rarely does an author come along who interweaves art with the story in such a way that the two are inseparable. From the postcard paintings to the handwritten letters (which the reader actually removes from the envelopes)it's as though art has come alive and the reader is an active participant in the story. I have found this to be true of all of Bantock's works and can't believe I didn't come across his talent years ago. Truly a fantastic collection.

The Characters Will Grab You and Not Let Go 26 Nov. 2003
By S. Wade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"The Golden Mean" is the best of the three books, in my humble opinion. The ending is satisfying and still somehow mysterious. Bantock doesn't spoon-feed his readers information, he seems to want to encourage them to make up their own minds about the nature of Griffin and Sabine's relationship, What It All Means, etc. Altogether, it's a wonderful, nerve-wracking book.

Oh... 21 Dec. 2001
By C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In some ways I felt like this series wrapped up too neatly, and in other ways I felt like it should have been more wrapped up. Oh well. Still a magnificent work of art combined with a compellings and intruiging story.
