I haven't been able to get into it all day. It says it's loading/transferring/blah blah blah, but I can't get the site to actually appear. Anyone else having this issue?
Very well written and definitely imaginative, but didn't resonate with me. I skimmed most of the ending, sadly. Just not a period of history that holds a lot of fascination for me and the fight scenes didn't hold my interest (it's NOT the writing, it's ME, swear).
I may give it another try in the future. I'm not sorry I read (most of) it, but it wasn't really my cuppa (tea).
This is a lovely, weird, completely imaginative and creative story and I just loved it. The idea of using "found" photographs as inspiration for such a story is brilliant. Aside from that, I found it beautifully written and completely engaging. I honestly went into it thinking that the "peculiar" children were going to be very dark and ominous. I'm so glad to say I was completely wrong. Darkness there is, indeed, but it's an original darkness, inventive and pretty scary.
I never knew what was going to happen in the story, and I LOVE that in a book. Everything, as fantastical as it was, made perfect sense, flowing from the logic Riggs created for this world. Beautifully done all around and I'll definitely be getting the second one!
Pretty cute, actually. Moved very quickly and I was momentarily disappointed until I realized (duh-uh!) that it was a novella. Will definitely consider reading more.
