Read in August, 2011

It's been a long time since a book kept me hooked from start to finish. I picked this book up on a whim in the (small) English section of a bookstore in Buenos Aires. Dragons, I said. I must have this. Unfortunately I could not find the previous one, Dragon Bones. But curiosity beat patience so I read it anyway, after seeing some reviews that said it could be read separately. I'll be getting Dragon Bones in digital format when I recieve my e-reader. But not having read the previous one did not prevent me from enjoying this one. Surely I missed some things, so I guess I'll be re-reading it sometime again.

The main character, Ward, is really engaging. The first person narrative works very well with him. He is a survivor, but neither his father nor his new tormentors could take away the kindness from him. The shifting points of view, written in third person when not focusing on Ward, give a little extra. I liked the short remarks by Ward at the begining of each chapter.

A very, very enjoyable read indeed.

Gabriela Started it a few days ago and already love it. It's been a while since I enjoyed a novel so much that I can't put it down.
