To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First of all it's a little annoying I can't review Sabine's Notebook because Amazon considers it 'part of a set' but the feelings I had for that were pretty much the same as the first book.
This is the last in the trilogy and again in trying so hard to be different and an unusual and beautiful format, the plot is seriously lacking. Again, took me ten minutes to read, and the sudden introduction of the 'villain' is a little amusing rather than scary. The book lacks depth; even the letters could be longer and more detailed.
Not to spoil anything but the ending is completely random and feels like the author's attempt at fobbing off the reader as he can't be bothered to keep the stories going. Leaves you wanting more but not in a good way.
Disappointed as I read so many reviews and was looking forward to this trilogy but they are just pretty to look at and flick through. Give them a try, but maybe borrow them instead of buying.
This is part of a trilogy. I read part 1 a very long time ago thinking that was that. I was thrilled to find out that there were two others written since then. These books are a treat for the reader. You get to open letters and read postcards written by the characters in the book. It is truly an intimate experience and these books are a great addition to any library and you will most likely read more than once
Ahimè introvabile la versione italiana. Ho completato la trilogia e vale più degli altri mille libri che possiedo. Sempre avvincente la trama... Libro perfetto e curato benché usato. Proveniente da uk.
Conoscevo già il libro in italiano, ma l'avevo regalato e così l'ho preso in lingua originale. Mi piace perchè è al di fuori di qualsiasi schema, è intrigante... e l'ho consigliato a mia figlia (14 anni) che l'ha letto in poche ore... se si inizia non si può smettere di finire di leggerlo.
This is the conclusion of the Griffin & Sabine saga. Again, we follow the story through their interchange of notes and postcards (finely inked by Nick Bantock) as they go from trying to connect to their final promise. Bantock later added another volume to the series, The Pharos Gate which amplifies the action of the last page.
This is the final book in the first Griffin and Sabine trilogy. The tension builds with Griffin returning to London and finding Sabine was never there, yet she claims she waited for them. Are they existing in parallel worlds, connected only by their correspondence and Sabine's visions. They work to meet and are worried by the blurring of the connection between them and a threatening figure who claims to be investigating them. I really felt for the two main characters and worried about their fate and if they would ever be able to meet in person or if they would always be separated and have only their writings to each other. The visual imagery continues to be stunning and the story keeps you on pins and needles up to the ending, which is really a beginning, starting the mystery anew for the second trilogy. While I found the conclusion not completely satisfying, it is very fitting with the story.
confused by the ending - even though I wasn't expecting a tidy little ending, the ending left me confused and disappointed. without giving anything away, don't remember how the ending fits with previous details of the book. Guess I need more of a "show me" or "explain it to me" or give me all the details.
