Oh wow. I seriously salute you if you are acutally up to this one. I'm pretty sure I read up to about 1/2 way through number five and just gave up. As brilliant as these books are, Carmody has a tendency to waffle. And take about 10 years to publish her next book. Ah well.

In all honesty I was a little angry while reading this book., in hindsight though this is probably because I had a particular idea in my mind as to how The Sending should be written. Obviously it was different to my own day dreaming of Elspeth's next step in the journey that I have taken with her for the last 18 years. If you see a keen follower of the Obernewtyn Chonicles you will push through the first few chapters but I could understand why some people would find it hard. All in all I enjoyed ...more

I was so disappointed that this is not the last book. Unfortunately, my disappointment overshadowed my excitement at reading this book.

It was definitely enjoyable and in some places it was hard to put down. I just wish that we weren't being strung along to wait for another book.

I'm not even sure what to say about this book. I think splitting the last book into two parts was a really bad idea. Granted, the second half might be super awesome and I hope it will be, but this book was a waste of time. I felt no rising action, no involvement in the story, and what was like 200-300 pages could easily have been cut down to 100 or less if only the important events were included.
This book was instead lots of land description and passive reflecting and observing on the part

Love this series, but waited f-o-r-e-v-e-r for this one to be available, and it looks like it could be even longer for the last two. The story is on the path toward the finale, so waiting is hard :(
This series was originally published in Australia, but the breaking points for the books don't match, plus some titles are the same and some are combined volumes. Makes it very confusing.

3.5 stars. I've liked most of the entire series of the Obernewtyn Chronicles, but the fact is that this installment was simply not as good as the others. There was a lot of review. But mostly there was just too much first person interior reflection and not enough action. The story was not even finished. It just stopped midway.
