Enjoyable take on a classic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Child Thief (Hardcover)
I purchased this book not really sure of what to expect, but I wasn't dissapointed. The edition is beautiful, there's a colour insert with Brom's fantastic illustrations, and each chapter starts with one of them too. I found the story engaging, and while not particularly uplifting, quite enjoyable. Brom is mostly known as an illustrator, and this becomes apparent in the rich, vivid descriptions of Avalon, which can come alive on the page. It hasn't been my favourite book of the year so far, but certainly quite readable, and while I'd give the writing 3 and a half stars, the lovely illustrations that come with it add a nice extra that pushes it to 4.
