Exceptionally creative, but...
Reminiscent of Yargo
Yargo was a book written decades ago about a woman who gets transported to an alien world and ends up changing their world inadvertently and, yes, there's the love story angle also.
I just don't like fiction stories that are obvious in their agendas or preachiness.
...and inventive, to be sure, but I had a difficult time with the level of violence and ignorance portrayed; especially as this is a middle-grade read.
The author definitely has a flair for this type of genre, but just as I would get going, enjoying the story, I'd stumble over a sentence that didn't make sense.
Example: He wore a white-dusty surcoat open in two neared his black trousers and long boots."
Makes me laugh every time
This truly is one of my absolute favorite, never go without, must-have-in-my-library-always books.
...and with some editing could really be great.
Started losing me in Chapter One
Why? Because of the infantile dialogue and writing style plus a forced plot.
...I picked up the book to read because the covers of this series are well-done.
A Bit Confusing
Maybe it's the fact that there are four sections broken down into more lengthy sections to explain the characters from each dynamic and a fifth section to quickly summarize the previous book.
What a delightful middle-grade mystery for about age 12.
...that had me engaged at the start.
Realistic dialogue and characters
Felicia the feline and Zeus the dog go on an adventure to a place called Ehtaria.
Very Well Done
Received an ARC in exchange for an honest opinion, and that opinion is that this is a great graphic novel.
I Wanted To Like This More
I was bored to tears with the shallow characters one moment and surprised by a scene the next. Sadly, I was hoping for more of the surprising moments, more depth, more...anything.
Illustrations Are Great
It takes all of two minutes to read through this rhyming story about a mouse and its plans to escape from a home in which the Mom is determined to be rid of.
So Well Written
Sarah wasn't a major character in this novel (I won't give too much away), but the opening chapter was so well written that I felt for her as much as I did for her husband.
So Much Potential
When reading the synopsis of this book, it intrigued me. Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Top 100 Finalist and an author who was a pilot himself, to me meant personal experience that could lend to the character’s flying skills, understanding of the flight controls better than anyone just researching it and bring me back into a world of aviation. I was correct, in that regard only.
