It would be a great book for parents to read out loud, one chapter at a time, before the kids go to bed each night.
Mama Dew
This book is very badly edited and has severe grammatical errors.

The biggest misconception about Lundon's Bridge book is the claim that it's about pollution and therefore is close to Michael Jackson's heart. Well don't get fooled fellow MJ Fans because pollution is only the side story and not the main plot of the book. Actually if you read the author's 2009 interview you'll see that the book is about "child kidnapping" and "bringing back belief in the family unit" but as they want to pull the heart strings of MJ fans suddenly the book is portrayed like it's about pollution.

What is the plot of the book? A mutant monster created by sea pollution allegedly kills the King of the Sea and the good Queen turns evil and seeks revenge from the humans starting with Lundon's family with the use of half human - half insect army. Pollution is just a brief mention in the book to explain why the Queen of Sea's anger is aimed towards humans, the rest is about how evil Queen plans to destroy the humans and how a few humans and sea creatures try to stop the Queen.

Like mentioned in the previous reviews the book suffers terribly from editing and grammar problems, however I guess it's not surprising given the fact that the "author" is a small time actor. (edited to add: A family friend has been angered by "small time actor" comment but Dennis H. Christen has only part take in Korean TV shows and all his awards are from Korea. He doesn't have success in Hollywood and he's unknown in USA and internationally hence that makes him a small time actor.)

The books storyline contents are seemed to be highly "influenced" by every other children's classic. For example

- Animals can talk (well it's almost like a requirement in children's literature although not really creative)
- Lundon's family is literally the equivalent of Dr.

I admit I came into this book with low expectations after reading the reviews here and getting a load of the strange premise and characters, but it does come off as a vanity publishing affair (with all the grammatical and punctuation errors that implies) rather than a professional work. Though the writer does have some talent for action sequences and energetic pacing, he also restates characters' emotions, thoughts, and situations too often; a good editor could have done so much with this. There are plot elements/character types handled better in earlier works, as Ivy's review pointed out (the "Butterfly Wonderland", for instance, is a retread of Pinocchio's Pleasure Island, and more recent works like "The Thief of Always" and "Coraline" have used similar settings as well). There are a few plot holes left unfilled (why aren't more humans aware of the Decayed Sea, if it's so dangerous and widespread?), logical questions unanswered (how did the villainness establish the fully-functioning "Wonderland" in less than three months?), unresolved plot points, and characters (such as the starfish, Muck Munchers, and Madame Lifee) that add so little to the story that their actions and dialogue could have easily been given to other characters or even dropped. There are also a few cringeworthy ethnic stereotypes/accents (the redneck kidnappers from Louisiana are the worst offenders). And Lundon is a weak lead character -- though written as 13 years old, she acts at least 5 years younger than that (Ivy noted her not comprehending kidnapping, but that's just the tip of the iceberg), and most of the time needs help from the male characters to escape sticky situations (when she and Waxer are taken captive, he tirelessly works to escape from a dungeon while she mopes about a nice mansion).Read more ›

his is a classic in the making. I cant wait to see the movie. Additionally, I have been reading some other comments left by people who are obviously trying to slander the relationship between the author, paris jackson and the upcoming movie. To say that some of these other reviews weren't meant to slander or hurt those involved would be a teneous argument at best. As somebody who knows the Jackson's personally, I am hopeful that those who are about to buy this book use sensible reasoning when contemplating whether or not to buy the book based on the slanderous reviews made by a few people. The author, Paris and the to be movie has already received rave reviews from The Today Show, The Ellen Show, AC Green, E!, Good Morning America and many more outlets who actually have the credibility. Additionally, I find it alarming that people are leaving remarks concerning the movie and other things that DO NOT have anything to do with the book. For one, there is a LEGAL contractual relationship existing between Paris and the author (anybody who knows how to properly conduct due diligence would know this to be true). I, for one, know first hand it exists. Two, for the people claiming that the movie is being funded by the "sales of the books" obviously have no idea as to what they are talking about and furthermore obviously have no idea what it takes to fund anything let alone a movie. Third, the team has in fact created a technological platform in order to give money back to over 150,000 schools around the country. Lastly, for the those who have nothing better to do than write slanderous reviews on both the book and the movie based on their own assumptions--- you really need to stop assuming because you obviously have NO idea as to what your talking about. Just leave the girl alone, your not helping her. God Bless!"
