I read this to our 10 year old daughter and it was entertaining and enjoyable for both of us. The characters have a bit more depth to them than some children's books and the story does not completely revolve around good versus evil. I think the comparisons to Harry Potter are pretty superficial, if I wrote more I would be giving spoilers so I will stop. Anyway, if you are looking for a good book to read to a kid I thoroughly recommend this.
After hearing an author interview on local radio I was keen to read this novel that was being touted as the next Harry Potter. If you loved HP, you will love this. I couldn’t wait to get home from work each day to keep reading! Great characters and very well written. I can’t wait for more.
I hope Jessica will forgive yet another JK Rowling comparison but it's a point of reference for many of us. Nevermoor TTOMC is like Rowling but with more layers, more heart, more 'Wunder' and a sneaky hit of LSD! Marvelous!!!!
This book was so well written!! The characters practically sprang to life from the pages. It was a lot funny, a little sad and full of adventure. I can’t wait to read the next one. This was a fun and easy read. Recommend it for any age.
A lovely book - beginning in sadness, rescued by adventure and all the fairytale delights, friends and rivals as the competition begins, then a finale of revelation, decision and ... Read the book to find out.
