I, for one, found it very engaging, because it was wonderfully unpredictable and the alternate world was very tangible and beautifully described.
Some of the similes and metaphors made me stretch extra far before I understood the intended comparisons, but otherwise, the writing was solid and very enjoyable.
I would definitely recommend this book.
The magic was wonderful and creepy, and the characters were memorable. There are multiple antagonists, and I loved all of them. Sordyr, the chillingly terrible forest demon who is made of living branches and smells of decaying leaves. Grace, the beautiful daughter of the cult’s leader, who has more darkness within her than anyone sees. And Kara must even fight herself as she begins to be taken over by the grimoire.
J.A. White uses my favorite style of writing, spare enough to not be distracting and to let the story shine on its own, but descriptive enough that I could feel and see and smell the story. It never felt overly complicated, or overly simple. The black and white silhouette illustrations by Andrea Offerman are also beautiful and eerily haunting. There are so many more fantastic things that I’d love to rave about but I can’t spoil anything!
I cannot honestly think of one thing I disliked about the book (although the cliffhanger was pretty devastating…in a good way). I’d been in a reading slump where I had to make myself return to most books, but I was finding myself reading The Thickety at every possible opportunity and thinking about it when I couldn’t. This is definitely the best book I’ve read in its genre for a long time and I’ve already pre-ordered the next book in the series, The Whispering Trees, which is due out in March.
