A Compelling Read,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Divide (Hardcover)
The amazing cover, which opens like two shutters, tempts you in to an amazing read. I had intended to read a couple of chapters and then do something else, but couldn't put it down until I'd finished it. Now I can't wait for the sequel. I'm rather past the 9-12 age group the publishers say it's for (x 5 actually!)but I don't like giving children books without knowing what I've given. The writing is beautiful, serious and seriously funny in places. The Divide’s alternative world is incredibly well worked out, none of those annoying inconsistencies that used to drive me mad as a child. It gave me food for thought too. Like all the very best children's books you can enjoy it on several levels. Some of the characters in this mirror world inhabit our world too, with all their quirks and foibles. If The Divide doesn't become a classic then Ironclaw's no brazzle!!
