Buy all three books and be prepared for a wonderful read! Check out the Doomspell trilogy also written by Cliff McNish which also is extremely exciting throughout!
Instead of it being written in a 3rd person view, it is written in a 1st person view. In other words, instead of someone narrating about Thomas (one of the main characters), Thomas is talking and describing things himself, which is better and easier to understand when reading it.
I would say Silver World is his most exciting book (so far...). It holds you in suspense and, like me, you'll want to read it all over again. It is definitely worth a read and a buy! Also, people should check out his website: ([...]) for more news and info on him.
Like the first book, this one leaves you with many questions, and is not a satisfying read in itself. To understand and appreciate the story you will need to read the whole sequence. Another annoyance (which stops the book getting a higher star rating) is the regular occurence of what appear to be 'continuation errors', as the author seems to forget which children are where or what they are doing. Maybe this is less noticeable to children than adults? It is certainly annoying when you find you need to reread a section because it doesn't appear to make sense, only to find that indeed it does not!
All this said, it is certainly a gripping story, perhaps because it opens up so many questions and doesn't rush to answer them, or perhaps because it is so bizarre and disturbing that you wonder what the author will dream up for these children next. I would certainly think very carefully before giving this book to any child under the age of 14, and it would very much depend on the maturity of the reader if 14+. As a parent, I'd recommend you read this story first yourself, and use your personal judgement to decide whether it is suitable for your own child.
