The story is full of engaging characters and the vocabulary used will stretch young readers without defeating them.
If you are an adult reading this story to children, you will find it as enjoyable as they do. It is something you can go back to again and again - I already have the paperbacks, but I wanted the books on my Kindle, too.
Felix is a young lad with a terminal illness, who whilst on holiday with his parents, collapses along the Divide, a magical place where worlds meet. Subsequently he awakens in a mythical land, and embarks on a journey not only to find a cure for his illness and a way back home, but also finds along the way friendship and himself.
Well written and full of immersive description, with characters who are fascinating and likeable, The Divide is a book that will keep you locked within its world until the last page.
Will purchase from buyer again.
A well-paced and intelligent story laced with wry humour that still manages to unobtrusively educate and tackle such important themes as globalisation without ever become preachy. Ms Kay expertly juggles, weaves, and final neatly knits together at least half a dozen different plot threads.
A rich cast of quirky and varied characters who avoid the stereotypes so often found in the average children's book. Every character, (even those with only bit parts), in this book feels real. The heroes and heroines have flaws and foibles and the villains all have at least one likeable or redeeming feature. (My personal favourite is Ironclaw; a loveable, fearsome and occasionally pompous brazzle - The Divide's equivalent of a griffin - who specialises in pure mathematics. Yes - The Divide manages to make even abstract maths both interesting and fun!)
Best of all though, is the setting. A wonderfully well thought out magical other world that engages the imagination, wraps you up in a sense of wonder and leaves you longing for more.
In the book's introduction, the publisher says he is trying to persuade Ms Kay to write a sequel. I sincerely hope he succeeds!
I have four goddaughters all of whom are the right age for this book. I have bought a copy for each of them.
