I have to say I'm dissappointed with this one,
This review is from: The Tin Princess (Point) (Paperback)
Before I start. I have to say the first three Sally Lockhart books (especially 2 and 3) were absolutly excellent (although I almost refused to read 3 after Phillip Pullmans choice of fate for certain main character!) However after having read The Tiger in the Well (which I struggled to put down) I settled down to The Tin Princess waiting to find out more about the excellent character of Mr Goldberg. Unfortunatly before I had finsihed the first couple of chapters he'd gone off to America taking Miss Lockhart with him!
I really had to force myself through the remainder of the book I'm sorry to say. The plot about mysterious brother the kept me interested enough to finish it but I think the most trying thing about it was how awful the character of Adelaide is. The only time we really heard her speak in privet was to be horrible to poor Becky.
Can we have one about Dan Goldberg or perhaps Harriet please Phillip?

Totally agree! And what was with the ending? I know Philip Pullman doesn't do long endings or nice happy "everything's tied up" kind of endings but that was just poor. It was if he was half way through writing the ending when someone told him he only had 10 pages left. Poor.
