My Name Is Mina

Award winning author David Almond reintroduces readers to the perceptive sensitive Mina before the events of Skellig in this lyrical and fantastical work My Name is Mina is not only a pleasure to read it is an intimate and enlightening look at a character whose open mind and heart have much to teach us about. A frustrating journal but an interesting character It pains me to give this such a low rating because I have very mixed feeling about it I appreciate the idea behind it but it is not very enjoyable to read This is not a novel or a straightforward narrative but a journal of a young girl called Mina She is a character in Skellig which is a book I really enjoyed This is her journal prior to the events of Skellig and it feels completely and utterly unnecessary Mina is a complete outcast of society because she views the world in a different way to most people she has filled her head with the poetry of William Blake She longs to be completely free but as a result comes across as little crazy I do think in a way Mina is wise beyond her years She has a better head on her shoulders than most adults She has convinced herself that there is no heaven thus the Earth must be treated as a heaven or life isn t worth living She has a positive proactive attitude and makes the most of every situation and everyone This is all very good but her journal just isn t that interesting to read Too realistic I feel like I shouldn t be reading it It comes across as something very private and contains the inner most ramblings of her character Don t get me wrong David Almond has written the journal very well but it terms of the readability of it it is just very poor It is repetitive and random There is no real story arc in it just a load of random stuff that barely connects I would rather have read a simple straightforward narrative of the events that happened to the character prior to the events of Skellig The journal does reflect the character but I just found it so tedious to read Mina is an interesting character and her journal is full of bright ideas Almond has captured the voice of a child superbly but the end result is utterly mundane There are so many times you can read an overly enthusiastic journal entry and find it remotely entertaining This is packed full of unnecessary anecdotes and tangents that literally just pack this thing out far too much I regret purchasing this because I feel like I have no new insight into her character I strongly recommend avoiding this and reading one of Almond s full novels instead This is because they are really good works of children s literature This however is very basic and not worth the time This is not Almond s finest hour Daisy Malone and the Blue Glowing Stone perceptive sensitive Mina before the events of Skellig in this lyrical and fantastical work My Name is Mina is not only a Pretend God Is Deaf pleasure to read it is an intimate and enlightening look at a character whose open mind and heart have much to teach us about.

    I had to give this a five Though I thought the first half was a solid three the second half blew me awayMay I say now if you are currently thinking of reading 'My name is Mina' without reading 'Skellig' I would strongly recommend against it While 'My name is Mina' would work as a stand alone book I think it adds another le
