Interesting book, but a bit long and off-putting in the last portion. I am not being nasty, I simply feel this particular series does NOT belong on a bookshelf. I believe it desperately needs to be turned into a series of movies. The big screen is the BEST format for Agatha as well as her feline companion. The fantasy and sheer number of characters/creatures involved, as well as the main character(s) and the stories themselves, could truly use a good fleshing out and the best place for that to be found is in the many creative minds of a "certain" type of movie-makers and their crews. This series would be a joy to watch, preferably in IMAX 3D format. There is a LOT of potential here, because of its unique and next to impossible to imagine devices and characters, and, well...EVERYTHING, but PLEASE keep Tarantino (too raw) away from it and target DreamWorks or any company with the budget (it has to be large) and minds (they must all be rarified) to bring out every bit of the drama, whimsey and creativity required to put together this work as it desperately deserves. I don't want to give away a single bit of the storyline, but if this could be turned into a screenplay targeted to a group of "someones" with unique imaginations? The sky's the limit! PLEASE go for it! P.S. NO, I am NOT tied in any way to this author/person, or anyone involved in this series. I am just an average Josephine with an eye towards creating a silk purse where a sow's ear now resides. No offense meant.
