Brilliant Bog Child
page 73 and lovin' it I can't wait to find out what happens next. I want to read as much as possible but I want it to last as long as it can. Impossible -I know- but it's true. there are many roads the story could take and I am dying to know which one it will turn down. Neive.

Boring Child
So far, page 86, chapter twelve, Bog Child is boooorring! I have never read such a repetitive book, and no humour at all. NO HUMOUR!! Not my piece of tree. Sally

Creature of the Night
If you flinch when you hear someone swear, then you'd better wear dark glasses when you read this book - it's full of it. It starts off very slowly and it never seems to speed up. Ann

The knife of I can't let go quickly enough!
Ugh! This was my first book; there is so much to dislike that I hardly know where to start. The very first thing to say is that I felt really cheated by the way the book just ends. I don't mind reading a book which is part of a series but each book should have a complete, self-contained story. I thought the way that Todd and Viola travel through the planet encountering different groups was interesting. The idea of Utopia and Dystopia, as explored in the Tempest, could have been made much more interesting. In my opinion this theme was dealt with in a very shallow way. Oh dear, this is starting to sound like a rant however this book didn't know what genre it was and there were too many competing ideas in it. Was it a romance? A journey? Science fiction? Rites of passage? ... or just a confusing muddle? The knife of never letting go? I couldn't wait to drop it! Missbiss
