To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Set in a creaky old house, brimming with interesting characters , lost 'treasure' and intriguing mysteries. The story takes place in the run up to Christmas, and as I read it during a cold and dark January, the story turned out to be a lovely way to capture the cosiness of Christmas. Some twists are clear from the get go, while others surprise along the way. Highly enjoyable, so much so, I've bought the sequel. Enjoy!
Don't let the 'for kids' tag put you off: like Narnia or Philip Pullman's work, this is every bit as good for adults looking to find a bit of escapism and magic in their lives. Absolutely adored the mix of adventure and heart and a bit of spookiness.
Bene imballato. Un pò impanato. Veloce la spedizione. Eh grazie, ha preso il piccione. Libro interessante, a volte inquietante. Tanto da farsela nelle mutande. Cmunque lo consiglio a chi la notte vuole fare un sbadiglio. Prezzo OK
I really enjoyed this, I think the 'twist' was quite well done. There were some things that weren't quite wrapped up by the end of the book, but I think it worked quite nicely and added to the mystery rather than feeling unfinished.
