    After a fewchallenging reads I felt the need for a palate cleanser and this worked just fine TAA might be the most British book I ve ever read, from the style to the characters to the humor But I can t complain about that The writing is impeccable and you can really feel the magic of this world P.B.Kerr created.The world building and mythology are excellent, even though that is a two edged sword While I loved all the intere

    I found this an entertaining, quick to read adventure book, and the central idea, that some people in the modern day world are djinns of the ancient legends whose task is to protect the world, is nice enough But the plot solutions were too facile and convenient, and so it was not really as exciting and fun as it could have been However, what bugged me the most was the attitudes the author showed, through the narrative and the atti

    What a really cute book I will definately let my daughter read this book when she is older I ve seen some criticism s about the issue of smoking in this book In the book, the reason why Djinn smoke is because they are made of fire and they like heat and smoke But the character, Nimrod, clearly states in the book that smoking is fine for Djinn but terrible for humans But isn t smoking bad for you Objected John It s terribly bad for human

    Though I ve read thousands of books, the ones I discovered as a youngster are special They re like beloved relatives, worthy of a hug every time and fondly remembered Yes, sure, now I m too old for Journey to the Mushroom Planet But it still gets a messy kiss from me I can still vicariously enjoy the wonderful summer vacation of the children in Arthur Ransome s famous Swallows and s E Nesbitt and Edward Eager and their magic games Alan Garner s and Ll

    Have you read the Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan It was like reading that but at the same time nothing fancy like that because i like this one better I liked how it was written I dunno, i really liked how UK writers write It was like in the same boat as Red Pyramid, being Cairo and travelling in London and other parts of the world but not in a very hectic manner like Rick Riordan s throwing all information to you that you were sick of it and you cannot take it

    The book, inspired clearly by Harry Potter if not Rick Riordan s Percy Jackson books, was ok The two protagonists, a set of twins who discover that they are djinn with magical powers, felt cookie cutter and never really seemed to break out of the mold.To make things worse, there were a fair number of xenophobic comments spread throughout the book, the French receiving a good number of shots hygiene being the number one thing attacked though Egyptians were not far b

    Semua hal yang tidak mungkin terjadi di dunia nyata dengan mudah terwujud di dunia fantasi Tidak heran jika ratusan cerita bahkan mungkin saja kini jumlahnya mencapai ribuan bermunculan Imajinasi setiap orang dengan dibiarkan bebas menciptakan karakter demi karakter yang dilengkapi dengan keistimewaan yang mengundang decak kagum Setidaknya semua yang saya tuliskan diatas ada pada karakter di buku ini Lihat saja Layla, wanita cantik yang menikahi Edward Gaunt, seorang pria

    Two american children find out that they are actually Jinn or Genie and set off to London to help out their Uncle, er, Nimrod Not a bad book, slightly action adventurish, but spolied by stilted writing and a quite bizarre hatred for the French, which might be ment to be humerous, but instead comes off as quite xenophobic The former might be because the author tends to write for adults and was trying to write down for children the latter, I have no explaination for, unless his English S
