Spells going mightily wrong, slimy holes appearing in walls, creatures of the underworld and unborn film stars made this a funny and extremely quirky read. Every so often though things seems to go off at a tangent, which left me wondering what 'that' was all about.
I can't decide whether L.C. Glazebrook's style of writing took me a while to get used to, or if the writing actually improved as I came into the second half of the story, and once I had finished the book I realised I was quite looking forward to reading more about Bone and Crystal.
There's a lot to like about 'October Girls'. I thought the characters were brilliant and Nicholson's writing style keeps things fresh and entertaining. The plot was interesting too. There was an abundance of odd names - Crystal's boyfriend is called Pettigrew, the film maker's name is Dempsey - which I personally found mildly irritating, but there is actually a bit later on in the book that sort of pokes fun at this. I like books to have a good sense of humour, and a sense of fun, and this has both.
The only thing that really felt a little odd about this book was at times it read like something aimed at say thirteen-year-olds, while at other times it seemed more directed at older teens. This didn't effect my overall enjoyment and was only noticeable a couple of times. All in all I'd say this was a really entertaining, quirky & fun read. If you're into YA Fantasy I'd say give it a go, it's something a bit different.
