I read Skellig when I was at school and I enjoyed it, but I didn't totally love it. The story did stay with me though and so I thought I'd give this a try - I'm really glad that I did. Mina is such a wonderful, interesting and quite a complex character. Almond's writing is almost lyrical in this book and it does feel very different to Skellig. Mina is unique as are her thoughts - she has a very intriguing look on the world and her way of expressing things in writing is interesting too. I haven't read a prequel before this one but it tied into Skellig wonderfully. It was interesting to see her links between both stories. A simple yet very interesting and thought-provoking read.
