This is a book that you can't wait to finish, but at the same time don't want to finish. The only solution is to start reading it all over again.
The book gets off to a slow start and slowly develops drawing the reader into the story. I liked the way it was written from a child's point of view with his fascination for words and the way their meanings were interpreted by him. The description of the characters and the locations was very good. Fairly early in the story Robert's (the central characters) brother goes missing and until I read further I thought it strange that no one seemed particularly interested however all becomes clear as the story developed. It is a fairly short story but I would have liked it to be slightly longer so the ending although satisfactory could have had a bit more detail.
In summary a great book suitable for all ages, don't be put off because it is a young adult book.
I was sucked in from the first chapter and couldn't put my Kindle down. Each chapter builder in a perfect pace - no crazy cliffhangers or anything misleading. The characters were real and story was just awesome.
The length is perfect for this type of story and for $2.99, it's a steal!
Buy it... NOW! :)
This book would be a great intro for a middle grade reader to magical realism. It has a grounded young hero. It addresses, indirectly, the transition from childhood to adulthood, and what is gained and what is lost along the way. It has some passages of writing that are just beautifully crafted. The plot is helped along with bits of exposition that aid the reader in following what's happening and it has a resolution that makes sense and doesn't leave the young reader at loose ends about what just happened. The book is brief enough that it is not a demanding slog, and there isn't a lot of complicated world building. It seems like it might be a bit of a chancey choice, because some readers will probably get the book and some won't, but this is certainly the kind of book that marks a real step up in quality and sophistication for the right young reader.
Plus, I'm a real sucker for wandering Jack tales, (the soulless wanderer), and this book fits nicely into that tradition. A real find.
