MIND BENDING IMAGINATION
Reviewed in Australia on 21 October 2021
I read this book many years ago as it was published then as one of S.K.'s earlier novels. I found it fascinating then and now I'm 20 or more years older (wiser ??) I find it an incredibly great book, I only got to read the first 3 books in the series way back then but now am looking very much forward to reading more.
Be patient readers ..... this is a long story with lots of detail, it reminds me of trudging through the works of Charles Dickens which I did, and was glad of it. I love details and long drawn explanations - not "condensed" for more of the impatient readers.
The movie they made was a farce, I was terribly disappointed in it as it skipped through so much so quickly leaving you thinking ..... yeah that was OK (ish). Nothing against the actors who played the characters, it just felt hollowed out and only left the husk of the real story, but that's Hollywood isn't it
