Ria a kingdom of adventure waiting for them through a gate in the garden wall As the world out. I read this novel when I was uite a bit younger and again recently I think that it would be uite easy to skim through this book and miss a lot of what Cockayne really intends whenever something strange occurs I doubt a superficial reader would enjoy this bookI can t really express what i found to be the intentions without giving away major aspects of the plot though I m afraidI found this book to be chilling and interesting to read right up to the very end where I was sadly uite disappointed I d say my 4 star review is uite generousWorth the read

The Good People

Deep in the English countryside Kenneth and his older brother have discovered the land of Arbo. I can t help thinking that this could ve been made into perhaps a 150 page book rather than a 300 page book perhaps even less That gives you an idea of the pacing and the amount of stuff that is overall unneccessaryBasic story Kenneth and Robert live with their grandmother in England during World War One There s a magic land beyond their house called Arboria where they have adventures and fight against the Barbarians and their leader Davy Hearn Then two evacuees Nadia and Janny come to stay They live there for a while Then Robert leaves Kenneth stays for the rest of his life there practicallyThat s really about itThis was atmospheric in part due to the gorgeous stylistic writing and the book itself was half way between have to keep reading and I want to put this down now I felt kind of obligated to finishThe events of the end were in a way worth the slow slow build up That s what I felt but I started to disconnect from the narrator at that stage If you were reading what I was reading you would too It would have been better if the creepiness was turned up a little during the novel it s there but it s not a big enough factor to make the book as a whole very memorableI should mention that writing from Kenneth s point of view was extremely well done if not the actual best techniue to use in a situation like this I feel that by the whole novel coming through his viewpoint I missed out on a lot of thingsPart of the novel is that you do begin to wonder a little about how much is real and how much is false by the ending though it s obviously meant to be real And you feel sorry for Kenneth I ll give you that However there s a lot to read before you get to the moment that makes you go is this real And then you forget about this point the point that the book jacket hails as being the biggest and most important and keep reading wondering when this book is actually going to endSpeaking of the end most of the good stuff happens there actually And still you re left wondering about why Janny and Nadia whose characterisation didn t seem very distinct from one another actually came to the house in the first place A lot of the foreshadowing about them never really comes to fruition There seems to be no discernable plot it s a little episodicShould you read it Wait for an abridged version In the end this book was rather pointless

    Original Surprising And somewhat sinister This book although as said above is rather long winded the storyline however is so incredible No one has come up with such a fantastic storyline as thisI do feel this would be suited to only some as the way it's written doesn't uite support the storyI was often surprised by the events taken place and rather confused at the change in tone but it was thoroughly enjoyedI RECOMMEND

    Freaky Had fun reliving the imaginative play my sister and I partook of when we were kids but in the book the line between fantasy and reality became really blurred Kept me reading but wasn't a book I was dying to get back to It reminded me uite a bit of the movie Beautiful Mind

    Confused and confusing I was never really clear on what was happening and why it was relevantThe main character is very unsympathetic and the story is way too depressing especially at the end hence the two stars
