A Kid's Review
This review is from: Gatty's Tale (Mass Market Paperback)
The year us 1209, none compainons set out from Wales on a great pilgrimage across Europe to Jerusalem.Not all of them will come home.
At the heart of this enthralling story, with its highs and lows and knuckle biting dramas, is Gatty, a field girl, beloved already by readers of the Arthur trilogy. Eager, bold and resolute, wide open to new experiences, she has an extrodinary journey of her own to make.
This book was rather slow, not unenjoyable, but slow. For me anyway, I just got distracted unless the room was empty and silent, maybe it is just my distraction problems. It was nicely written and Gatty had nerve, the charecters were nicely written, even is one or two came to sticky ends. My only problems are the age group its aimed for, it is supposed to be for tweens, but for some of the younger tweens it may be slightly old for them. Then again maybe Im just paranoid?
