4.0 out of 5 stars Pampas Class Review 3 - Wonderful, 3 July 2009
This review is from: Clockwork (Paperback)
Clockwork Review - Purple Group

Philip Pullman's clockwork book has really struck us with excitement and kept us on the edge of our seats. The start of the book is real glum, as there are too many characters to keep track of. Nothing really makes us want to read on as there's nothing interesting hidden around the corner.

The book is set in Germany (Schatzberg) in a pub filled with people, there's Karl, a lazy clockmaker apprentice who abandoned his duties and now is in trouble! Will he redeem himself? There's a storyteller called Fritz with hair-raising stories in mind. One dark night of Schatzberg he told about a prince called Florian who wasn't real, he had a deep secret... There's no trouble until he came to life! Is the town of Schatzberg safe?

Amazing, mind blowing with a surprise on every single page. We would recommend to children and adults (not young children because there's a scene where someone's neck is slit.) as the book is a great read with an eerie glow to it, only for people who love mystery, horror and a bit of super-stition.
Philip Pullman has really thought of what's happening next.

If there was anything to change it would be the beginning of the book, maybe take out the characters not needed and have a bit of mystery like it has though out the book.

I would rate the book 7 out of 10.
