None of the subtle development of the first two books. And I miss Tolly and Mrs. Oldknow's stories too much. There are some lovely descriptions and it starts out promisingly, especially with Boston's characterization of the forest and gorilla family, but the rest is unsatisfying. So disappointing after my hopes for the series beyond the first two books!

Some quotes I like:

'Ping had the kind of imagination that never dismisses anything as ordinary. Nothing was ordinary to him. What was always most surprising was just how extraordinary things are. It was hard to keep up with them.'

'It was a cruelly perfect morning, with some of the enchantment of night still clinging to it.'

On to An Enemy at Green Knowe. I'm hoping it will pick up with the return of Tolly...
