Very Interesting Book
on 23 May 2008
This is the first Julie Myerson book that I have read and I really enjoyed it.
In the opening chapter it had the feel of a ghost story and although it wasn't one, it never really lost that ethereal quality. Seen through the eyes of a thirteen year old, the story was like that of a very dark fairytale, or the Famous Five gone wrong!
The characters were well rounded and very believable and again, the classic fairytale was evident in the form of the handsome hero, the naughty tinker bell and ever-ominous dark presence.
I didn't find the ending to be a let down and I wouldn't have wanted it to be any different, but it did make me go back and re-read some of it, in case I had missed something.
This book has made me keen to read to more of Julie Myerson's work and also to wish that I were thirteen again!
