Tries to share The Iron Man's laurels
on 4 February 2012
I bought this with The Iron Man and the Iron Giant (DVD). I had already seen the DVD so I knew it was good and the book didn't disappoint. Can't say the same for this though.
I thought the Iron Woman was just a sequel but I didn't like it at all. I read it to my 8 year old son and it was just weird. He didn't really get it and I thought the way it was written (Ted Hughes knows how to write!!)could cause nightmares. It was a bit too green in a sort of militant eco-warrior way.
I would recommend you read it yourself before you give it to a pre teen.
