I went in with high expectations based on several very strong recommendations for this series, but I was a bit disappointed. Perhaps the best way to say it is that I appreciated this book more than I enjoyed it. This is one of those books where I cou ...more

Thought-provoking but uneven. Loved some of it, but can't rate it more than 3 stars overall. Should make for an interesting book club discussion, though.

Uneven, but interesting. I felt like the author couldn't make up her own mind about the main character, and so neither could I. I may read the next one but it won't be high on my priority list.

Beautifully written and very compelling. Great characters. The resolution lacked a little something I wanted, but overall a magical book.

There are a lot of Christmas/holiday books that are cheesy or saccharine. This is not one of them. Great story, great art, and it's been my son's favorite book this holiday season. EPIC!!!

It was an emotional experience reading this book, knowing it's the last of Terry Pratchett's that will be coming out. And it's a very fitting good-bye.

As the note at the end makes clear it wasn't fully finished to Sir Terry's own standards when he d

Schubert's Winter Journey by Ian Bostridge
"A disorderly book, and not in any sort of good way. Uneven; some chapters are little gems, but most are at best trivial throw-aways. I definitely came away with a cultural appreciation of Schubert and his works - so in this Bostridge succeeds - bu..." Read more of this review »
