it was ok
bookshelves: fantasy-scifi, fiction
Read from December 28 to 30, 2011

A really creepy, intriguing premise, but it was not chilling or suspenseful enough in the telling – indeed I found it a bit dull. I quite liked that it was more contemplative and philosophical, but it really needed a dose more drama. None of the characters were really brought to life – they were all a bit samey (and not just the Children!). It's also quite dated in some of its views.

Overall it was enjoyable, but I can’t help feeling like I’ve just read a book that was laid out marvellously and then all the really interesting bits cut out.
