This was an excellent story, with enough depth and levels to the story to entertain a variety of ages. Though I read it alone, I think it would make a great read-aloud story with the family.
Gideon the Cutpurse reminds me of books I loved in my youth. It's a complex and romping story, with plenty of good guys, bad guys, and some that are a little bit of both. I think it is rich enough to become a classic someday.
I loved the scenes where Kate and Peter had to deal with life in the 17th century, then they would fade and get a taste of the 21st century again.
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
It's an excellent book and well worth the time to read, no matter what your age.
Entertaining, unpredictable, enjoyable
The characters developed well and the plot twists kept me entertained. I looked forward to this installment for months, and it was as good as I'd hoped it would be.
All of the train scenes
When Scarlet began to realize Wolf's identity, found her grandmother, & thought she was abandoned.
I read Cinder, Marissa Meyer's first book in this series, almost by accident. I enjoyed it a lot and waited impatiently for Scarlet to be published, hoping it would be as entertaining as the first book. It was. I love a well-written, thoroughly developed story that has enough twists to keep the reader surprised. Meyers delivers each time.
Overseas started out rather predictable and a little confusing, but the action and surprise picks up from the middle onward. It's a fun read.
It's a time traveling novel, and as the story unfolds, events that seemed inconsequential at the beginning, suddenly take on plot-thickening significance.
Julian. I love the way Ms. LaVoy did his voice.
Again, the hero, Julian. He was believable (o.k., and desirable, too)
It's a great summer read. If you're a little bored at the beginning, press on; you'll be glad you did.
