I kind of loved this book For reasons that are completely my own and probably because I study books and analyze them and read into them far than just the story However before I get into those reasons let s discuss the book itself The cover is gorgeous It s bright and interesting and sure to catch the eyes of the intended audience And even though it does not say so in the cover or elsewhere in the synopsis I don t think the book has steampunk elements that I like very muchThe beginning is slow and at first I wondered if I should give up but for some reason I decided that I must persist and so I did Bart and his sister have a sad life having to live hidden as they do because being Peculiars their lives are forfeit if they get caught Their mother was fooled by a high fairy who loved her abused her and then left her The novel begins with the narration of how fairies crossed over from fairyland to Bath and the war that ensued as humans and fairies battled for supremacy with the humans finally retaining their superior status That was the slow part too much tellingHowever once the narrative takes off it does so with a bang Bart is a sympathetic character and it is easy to be completely on his side as he lives his half life not understanding why he is hated for being something and someone he had no say in Then there are the various other characters some of them terrifying others not so much Arthur Jelliby is a very interesting character he is dynamic and shows a lot of growth during the course of the narrative He begins as a pampered soft character and ends as someone who knows and is determined to do right and punish the wrong The pacing is awesome the tension works to keep the narrative flowing and the relationships between Arthur and Bart and Bart and the rest of the world is intriguing Even the relationship between the plum lady and the parasite who actually loves her is food for thought I thought this was a splendid novel and offered substance as well as entertainmentNow the reason why this novel spoke so deeply to me is because even though it is couched in mythical and fairy tale terms in an alternate universe the issues and themes of this novel are so very contemporary I read this novel by George Bowering called Shoot which dealt with the downward spiral of a gang of outlaws who were mostly half English and half First Nations Both that novel and this one showed the stigma that is attached with being a mix of two races who are at odds with each other Both show how unfairly the child is treated simply because he or she is a mix You may think that this is an old fashioned concern but a look around at the Happa culture will soon show you otherwise Old prejudices still exist and are difficult to break and The Peculiar is a very admirable way of letting children learn about different people and encourage them to accept these peopleI recommend this novel most strongly Normal unnoticed too and who against all odds offers Bartholomew friendship and a way to belongPart murder mystery part gothic fantasy part steampunk adventure The Peculiar is Stefan Bachmann's riveting inventive and The Complete Chronicles of Conan Centenary Edition universe the issues and themes of this novel are so very contemporary I read this novel by George Bowering called Shoot which dealt with the downward spiral of a gang of outlaws who were mostly half English and half First Nations Both that novel and this one showed the stigma that is attached with being a mix of two races who are at odds with each other Both show how

I really didn t care for this book for several reasons I think the biggest problem for me was that none of the characters were really engaging to meI didn t care for any of them they were not terribly well developed in my opinion and I just didn t much care what happened to any of them This book takes place in a world where Fairies have come to England and or less gotten trapped there The fairies arrival resulted in a mass destruction of Bath in England so the fairies so you are immediately not so sympathetic to the fairies plus most of the ones you meet are varying degrees of unlikable Once the fairies got stuck in England the British have stuck them in ghettosdone everything they can to temper their magic and turned the vast majority of the fairies into a poverty striken subjugated classno there goes my sympathy for the person Barthie is a nice enough Changling and Hettie is too young to be interesting and Mr Jelliby as a totally lazy disinterested man of privilege thrown into a situation where he can make a difference is the most appealing but his character is uite undeveloped IMO Jack Box and Millicene were the most interesting to me and I kept hoping Ophelia would show up and turn into a real character but she didn t The book is very very British in feel which is kind of fun in and of itselfThe world is kind of neat though the view of humanity is so dim that it was frusrating to me Perhaps the most annoying to me was that as a book that only barely held my attention it ended with a total cliff hangernothing resolved I don t know that I care enough to read the next now
