While the ideas were intriguing enough to keep me reading because I honestly didn’t know where the story was going, I probably would not be very happy if I had paid for this book.
With everything from strategy tips to interviews with designers, this is a packed book great for anyone who loves boardgames or wants to find something new to play.
An enjoyable sci-fi action read suitable for all but the youngest, with a heroine you won't forget and a world that comes to life on the pages.
As sci-fi it is sadly a little average. It is well-written, with decent world-building, but anyone who follows mecha fiction or AI ship stories will find little unusual or unique here.
Unreadable due to formatting issues around speech
It is a good story, a very good story, and even if enjoyed isn't the right word, it kept me hooked and reading until the last page.
The content is too adult for children, but I suspect too simplistic for most adult readers.
definitely and undeniably well-written, but...it didn't really engage me.
It is absolutely entrancing, and a beautiful story told in a literary and haunting style. On the strength of this, Steve Vernon is a superb storyteller.
Romance readers will probably love it, but fantasy readers, YA fans, and even children will find something enjoyable in this modern fairytale. Just remember to buy the second book!
A stunning piece of horror writing. When I finished it I went for a two hour walk. Then I recommended it to the rest of the group
A streak of darkness and a not entirely happy ending that makes this the type of children's book that will endure and a blend of sadness and humour that readers will love.
Teen and young adult readers might enjoy it. It is an interesting example of the paranormal genre, with an original and unique world
This is a lovely example of an early reader. The only downside is that it uses American spelling (e.g. 'color' not 'colour'), and so may be confusing to children just learning to read and write.
An unseasonal story perhaps and yet still absolutely hilarious.
It might be great read with mum and dad, but mum and dad are going to need a magnifying glass.
