I enjoyed this novel, although it’s most certainly not aimed at me as a reader. It’s a sweet story that first introduces the concepts of science fiction and fantasy novels to younger readers. If I’d read this earlier in my life, I think I would have greatly appreciated it.
It does contain some very predictable and for me somewhat dull undertones. But again I’d probably put that down to not being the intended audience of the novel. Some parts of it actually were quite creepy, and the writing is nicely visual.
A great story for children, but not one that I think translates as well for adults
