0This book turned out differently than i imagined it would when i first heard about it. It wasn't as playful as I thought it would be. I was expecting kind of a light read, but thos was a little darker than that. i can't say that I didn't like it, but it wasn't as great as the reviews said it was. I give it three stars, because I made it to the end and was interested in the character's lives and how they would turn out at the end.
Wasn't sure what to think of this book at first. Then when I was done I realized I really liked it! I have seen a bunch of reviews on here where people say it is preachy, false, righteous, or whatever. I don't agree, but I can't say I disagree either. But who cares anyway? It was still a darn good book. It was short, easy to read, and entertaining. It was a book about a boy's journey to places I will never even get close to. Isn't that what books are for?
A fairly interesting, very involved murder set in an upper-class Victorian home where nearly everyone, from servants to Sir Basil himself are lying. Several characters return from the previous book, and a large loose end is tied up as well. I was hooked all the way through, and intend to keep reading more of this series.

Listened to the Full Cast Audio Playaway. This was clearly one of the first generation Playaways that our library ordered - the sound quality really is different - this was my first opportunity to really notice that. As usual with a Full Cast production, I loved it. Previously read print copy in April 2007.
When I first heard about this novel, I was intrigued. A teenage girl raped and murdered tells her story from beyond the grave. I could get into that. But I don't get it. Maybe it's the sexuality-obsessed part of me speaking, but something as traumatic as a rape isn't really glossing-over material. The narrator tells a detailed and nuanced story full of insightful metaphor and thoughtful musings. It's light and pretty in the face of grim subject matter and the sorrow of missed opportunity. But it reads almost too light, too wonderous and amazed at her predicament. Perhaps it comes from her distance from the event. The narrative seems to start at the time, the present of the end of the novel. That could make the measured reactions and removed emotions at least understandable by then. But the grief that protagonist Susie professes feels incomplete and as such makes the entire work ring sentimental and a little false. I wanted to like this a lot more than I did, but it was very readable and made for an interesting, though eerie, bedtime book.
Good book but it's tiresome to keep reading about Elena’s murdered sisters again and again and again… drip drip drip… yes, we remember, we’ve read about it before. We are finally! seeing how Raphael is becoming a more likable character instead of the arrogant ass he used to be. Illinum is, as always, a very nice touch to the story and all the secondary characters make it a better book. The main mistery in this book wasn't hard at all to guess but I really liked the way Singh developed it.
A totalitarian country, where there are 12 presidents, each from very different political? views, which has to kill each other in order to have only one, where families must guess each day what the country thinks about a question put on TV, in orther to have electricity ... even in hell think that this is too much. A fantastic story about a boy and his friends that have to travel to different worlds to try to save their country. Hilarious.
