This review is for the second trilogy only: for some reason Goodreads lists the Griffin and Sabine trilogy all together, but not the Morning Star one, and since each of these books takes between 30 and 60 minutes to read, I don't want to ratchet up my number of "read" books by including each of these individually. I loved this trilogy: where the first one ended with Griffin and Sabine possibly meeting, possibly not meeting, this series leaves it to the reader to surmise what happened to them (I ...more

Recommends it for: people who like beautiful things, and people who speak French.
I loved the first book, Griffin and Sabine, and sort of wish it had been left as a stand-alone. The next two books, Sabine's Notebook and The Golden Mean, rounded the series out as a pretty darn good trilogy. I really wish he had ended the series there. After The Golden Mean, the books get a bit tedious. The new characters introduced seem like a less interesting version of Griffin and Sabine. There is Good and there is Evil, and neither is very interesting. The two new Good people occasionally w ...more

The books that first introduced me to the wonderful world of Nick Bantock.

Voyeuristic in nature, the reader slowly unravels an epistolary mystery by reading both the letters and postcards sent between Griffin and Sabine. The story deepens as each letter must be opened and removed from its envelope; transforming the act of reading from passive to active.

Heavily illustrated with incredibly dense multi-media collages, as well as gorgeous postcards and hand-written letters, all the books in the ser

It seemed easier to add the boxed set, since I think that's the only way to read these. I discovered books 3 and 4 in the series at a used book sale and then I went back and read them all together. I think Griffin and Sabine is a stand-alone classic, and there are elements of the others I don't love, I actually didn't think the second trilogy was necessary, but as a concept (epistolatory storytelling) and a series I love it. These picture books for adults are a pleasure to read - I love the "han ...more

Amazing, beautiful artwork--very satisfying and fun to actually pull letters out of envelopes that are embedded in the book. Alas, the mysterious, metaphysical love story loses a lot of its magic (novelty) after the first two books.

I am in love with this story. I have read the 6 books several times, and each time I find myself consumed with the romance and mystery of this fascinating tale. The art work is stunning and contributes to the plot. Definitely one of my favorites of all time.
