Original. Entertaining. Delightful. Major Kudos awarded to the authors for creativity, imagination, and being unafraid to demonstrate symptoms of probable insanity.
I loved this book! Sure the alien supervillains are more than a little over the top. And the hero has way too many totally awesome powers. My sixteen-year-old nephew would love to have them. But, hey, if you’re going to take a trip down fantasy road, it might as well be, well, fantastic. Go all out.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Dangerous Days of Daniel X, and eagerly anticipate the sequel. What feats of imagination will they come up with this time?
Rating: 4.25 out of 5 stars.
Now about Brida and webster12’squestion:
Let me ask you a question: Why do you think you were being preached to while reading this book?
Perhaps preached is too strong a word, except in terms of a religious lecture. In Brida, it seems to me like we’re are all being “Taught”, in a way. There is very little plot throughout much of the book, except as a kind of backdrop. If that makes any sense. In The Alchemist and The Witch of Portobello there is a story that holds and interests the reader. This is why most of us read fiction. Read novels. Brida doesn’t do that. At least not for me. I hope that answered your question.
