In the introduction to the book, Zafón admits that this was initially written as a book for 12 & 13 year-olds, but hopes that adult audiences will like it as well. Hmm. Well, it wasn't bad, but I would've liked it a lot more if I was twelve. It's a fun horror story, set in a small seaside town in the 1940's, and featuring the devil in the guise of an evil clown. A lot of the elements of the plot seem to be there just for the sake of being spooky, and aren't ever explained or tied in to the story. I'm not necessarily objecting to that - after all, the supernatural is often unexplained - but it's an unusual technique. I liked it, but it was nowhere near as good as Zafón's more recent books aimed at adults.
lakdsjfald KELADRY 8-| I hated her so much. I read the entire series because I am loyal to Tamora Pierce, but, God. I just. Really really disliked her. She was so annoying, always feeling like she had to prove herself, and I couldn't help comparing her to Alanna and thinking how much more awesome Alanna was. Neal was pretty awesome (I think that was his name). I don't know. I don't think these books were worth the hardcover prices I paid for them :|
