Journey into a Fantasy World
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 20, 2020
[Note: I had a hard time tracking down which version to review; I believe this is it, the 2016 version I purchased in 2017. Yes, it took me that long, but that's no fault of the book. I just have a lot on my Kindle.]
This was an interesting book that seemed a bit overly simple to me at first, but as I kept reading, I was drawn into the story. I’m not used to reading third person, so initially I felt a sense of distance because I was getting Told what the characters were feeling and thinking. But I got used to that. The fantasy world in this novel is nicely imaginative and detailed. The pencil drawings at the beginning of each chapter enhanced the story and set a nice mood throughout. There were some great lines I admired, such as: “Above them, the crescents of the two moons looked like they had been starved by the night.” Stepping through a mirror into another world reminded me of Alice’s Through the Looking Glass, but overall, the novel is more unique than derivative.
