Read from September 23 to 29, 2015
A new comedic romp through a magical tapestry maintained by Earth’s Immortal women.
Bookish Things: 199 pages. The cover is lovely, though it does make me think this will be a high fantasy and it’s not really.
Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $3.06 or paperback for $15.95
I liked a lot of the characters, Abbey, Matt, Ruth and Boo were some of my favorites.
Robert and The Doctor were interesting characters too, not that I can say I liked them. But they kept me guessing.
The book was not what I’d expected, and that’s probably a good thing, because I think the cover lends itself to a very traditional fantasy story, where as this story has loads of modern ties, magical ties and even a small sprinkle of humour.
The humour wasn’t as pronounced as the book synopsis makes out, a fair number of the jokes were in poor taste or repeated too frequently to be funny after the first time.
I got distracted by the paragraph breaks and lack of paragraph breaks littered throughout the book. Minor things really, but they do make it harder for the reader to enjoy the story.
The ending felt like it was purposely left open for another book, but there’s nothing forecast on Goodreads about another book. It just leaves too much unsaid and unfinished as far as I’m concerned.
