I don’t tolerate you. I can’t breathe when you’re not here, I can’t think, I can’t write music properly, I spend my whole bloody life waiting for the post. I never said because I thought you didn’t want to hear it. We don’t talk about – any of that.
Discovering that this book existed was akin to receiving a much hoped and desperately longed for present. I could not believe my eyes. The Watchmaker of Filigree Street is one of my all time favorites. It's one of those delightful books you're too awed by and never fully understand. But it was magical, and it cast a bubble of transportation around me, so that I felt myself inside it and saw everything as if with my own two eyes.
Six was obnoxious, Takiko Pepperharrow deserved some kind of closure with Mori, a clear acknowledgment, perhaps, and Thaniel was his usual mushy self. I like the way characters are written and their emotions portrayed in these books. It's a wonderful mix of peculiar and intriguing.
While I evidently need to read this book and its sequel at least twice more to fully appreciate everything, this time around, things didn't go over my head as much as they did in TWOFS.
Hoping this gets more sequels!
