  1. Just finished reading this. First of all I'm not sure why I read this all the way through. This isn't a criticism of the book but more a question of taste. I like dark tales with plenty of violence. However, I couldn't put this down.

    I'm going to attempt to explain why I loved this book in no particular order. It's well written for a start, it's an absolute joy to read. It reminded of being a kid and reading famous five books. The world is vivid and believable, the characters even though they're children have depth. It engaged me on a level that I can't really explain. It was child like and naive but sad and dark at the same time. There is mystery and a hundred unanswered questions. It captures those times when kids struggle with an adult world and where innocence and reality collide. It seems like a kids book and an adult book all in cover.

    I still don't understand why this book captivated my imagination so fully. I hope to figure it out by the time I get to the end of the season.

  2. I played with that danged spider for like 10 minutes *grins sheepishly
