First Line: It was in the year 1046, on a cold winter’s night, when a fog, thick as wool and dank as a dead man’s hand, crept up from the River Scrogg into the ancient town of Fulworth.
While browsing my libary’s online catalog I was drawn to the cover and title of this book. I wasn’t sure what to expect from it but what I got was a mediocre story. It was a short, quick read but other than that there wasn’t all that much substance to the book. The story and the characters just all fell flat for me.
Because there just wasn’t much too this book writing a review of it is kind of difficult. None of the characters or the plot were very memorable and I think I only managed to finish it because it was so very short. I’ve read other books by Avi in the past and I had enjoyed them but this one, not so much.
I don’t know. I think I’ll just keep this one short and say it was just meh for me and not something that I can really recommend. Your time can be better spent on something else.
