The main character is well developed and some of the supporting cast is engaging, and some episodes are original and fun and just race along; but in the end the plot is a bit derivative and the resolution a little disappointing - Pacific Rim meets ET, sort of. In fact, the book is quite cinematic, with plenty of visual set pieces; I bet I could name a dozen films the author has seen, and really, but really liked.
Mixes some good ideas with uneven writing. The opening chapter is beautiful, poetic, but it never reaches those heights again, quite. And one moment it seems pitched at twelve year olds, with challenging themes (environmental degradation, bad parents, disability), lots of suspense, even some horror, then suddenly it seems to cater for seven or eight year olds.
Some good absurd humour (cows! killer grannies! and lots of non sequiturs) but mixes fluent passages with too many cliches - could do with a good (better) editor. Too many 'I smiled', 'I sighed', 'she rolled her eyes'... and one massive continuity clanger. Quite a slight book in the end, which only took a few days to read at bedtime.
The kids liked it, but it didn't leave much of an impression. Maybe it needs a film to really make an impact.
I urge you to read this book - you will not be disappointed.
