The Kappa Child is awesome. Drawing from Japanese folklore, Goto weaves a story of fantasical realism that draws at least somewhat from her own childhood in a Japanese Canadian immigrant family. The family tiptoes around an abusive father, and Goto explores the impact of childhood on adulthood, the meaning of family, and finding one's own path in the world. Great book.
Another fantastic book in the Iron Druid series. I love these books - the characters are engaging and I love the dialogue, both with Oberon and between the main characters. Granuaile comes into her own as a druid, but doesn't loose the personality and wit (and badassedry) from earlier books. I also love the mythology, drawn (in this book) from Irish, Norse, Greek, and Roman backgrounds. I'm a fan, and can't wait to read the next ones!
Edward's point of view of Twilight. It's awesome to see exactly what he thought throughout the book, considering we only get Bella's point of view.
I first read this in 1978 & dipped in again because my sister gave me its 'sequel' DR SLEEP for Xmas & I thought I might need a refresher. I was astounded by how much of it I had forgotten, largely because Kubrick's film version left so much out (& put so much in). I loved it at the time but, all these years later, it was a less compelling read. Disappointed.
This book has some lovely moments and writing, but the pacing is odd and it's not quite a young adult novel because the main character is so young for most of the book. I'll never be able to get any of my fourteen year olds to want to read this. And my younger readers are actually reading up too. If Cantor had made the main character just a few years older, I think this book would have been a winner. I look forward to seeing what she does next.
