Did I enjoy this book: If thereÃ¢??s one thing I like more than a book about a fake, ancient civilization, itÃ¢??s a book about a fake, ancient civilization that loves rocks. And, friends, if thereÃ¢??s one thing I like even MORE than a book about a fake, ancient, rock-loving civilization, itÃ¢??s a book about a fake, ancient, rock-loving civilization that secretly still exists. Oh yeah, this book is cool (and, I know IÃ¢??m snarky, but IÃ¢??m being serious right now. I like this book).
IÃ¢??ll spout my usual Ã¢??the author needs to work on her grammar and the book could use a few more rounds of editingÃ¢?? line (because, as is so often the case, itÃ¢??s true), but really my only issues were: (1) the distracting artwork stamped into the text, and (2) the just-a-bit-too-happy-ending. IÃ¢??m anxious to read the second book in the series not because I want to know more about the CobbogothiansÃ¢?? rocky ways (though I do), but because I want to see if Clark can expand NorahÃ¢??s character without, well, without the thing that everyone thought was going to happen happening. So often tragedy shapes oneÃ¢??s character Ã¢?? I hope Clark finds a way to keep Norah from going stale.
Would I recommend it: Yeah, itÃ¢??s cool. Rocks are cool.
