Long-Winded yet Fabulous,
This review is from: Anybodies, The (Hardcover)
When I first opened the cover of "Anybodies" a few years back, I was intrigued by the world that lived inside and envied Fern, with her transforming grandmother, arch enemy, and mysterious mother. I loved the fresh ideas (putting a hand inside a painting! Shaking things out of books!). It was fast-paced and exciting. If I had been reviewing then, I would have given this book five stars without a doubt.
Now, as I reread the book, I find myself frustrated by the author's ramblings and ravings. Why must she go on and on? I just want to get back to Fern and her dad, and the Anybodies! I couldn't care less about your windbag professor from long ago. I don't want to know about your childhood.
Apart from that, it was charming and light. It made me laugh, and it made me want to skip dinner so I could keep reading. It made me glad there were two books afterwards that I could read.
So, I give it four stars.
