[ Pdf Lirael ↠´ gemstones PDF ] by Garth Nix ä When I glance at the reviews for this book, I m actually surprised Not that people would like this book, but that everyone would like it I thought for sure there would beof a split on it.
I mean, the writing is good Nix can put together sentences and his plot is soundly articulated His Old Kingdom is a vast and impressive construct, and his imagination is superb There were even a couple really good scenes in here I justI don t know I couldn t wait for it to end I hated the characters As much as I love Tim Curry as a narrator, even he couldn t save this audiobook Lirael was annoying, and her dog was worse Sam started out alright, but I came to loathe himthan Lirael herself by the end Mogget the cat was pretty good, nearly as enjoyable as he had been in the first book.
The first book, which I had liked What happened here Ahhh, don t know Maybe it s suffering from middle book syndrome Ma I was listening to the last few chapters on audiobook bless Tim Curry and his downright villainous voice and had my eyes closed, and when that epilogue reveal happened, my eyes shot open like I was a Dead thing come back to consciousness.
The first 100 or so pages of this didn t entirely hook me, as we had a new protagonist and not a whole lot happened But once it really got going, I was very invested Lirael and Sameth were fantastic protagonists and I loved them both so much Garth Nix is phenomenal at writing characters that act their age without being annoying or cliche Even Sabriel and Prince Pinocchio aka Touchstone were recognizably the same people, despite so many years having passed since the first book.
The animal sidekicks in this once again utterly stole the show As usual, Mogget was A , but the Disreputable Dog was new and just Lirael Has Never Felt Like A True Daughter Of The Clayr Now, Two Years Past The Time When She Should Have Received The Sight That Is The Clayr S Birthright, She Feels Alone, Abandoned, Unsure Of Who She Is Nevertheless, The Fate Of The Old Kingdom Lies In Her Hands With Only Her Faithful Companion, The Disreputable Dog, Lirael Must Undertake A Desperate Mission Under The Growing Shadow Of An Ancient EvilIn This Sequel To Sabriel, Winner Of The Aurealis Award For Excellence In Australian Science Fiction, New York Times Best Selling Author Garth Nix Weaves A Spellbinding Tale Of Discovery, Destiny, And Danger When I started this, I was way excited another epic story in this cool magical world with TIM CURRY narrating, again The first section was great We meet Lirael, who is a loner and has trouble being around other people and communicating She is a Daughter of the Clayr, but doesn t have the power of sight, she is an outcast.
She finds a place to work where she might belong the library and comes across a new, wonderful friend The Disreputable Dog I love TDD So fun, so funny, stole the show Similar to what Mogget did in the first book But then, Part Two happens Sam Let me see how can I describe Sam Spoiled Prince Weak Spineless Full of fear Cowardly His one good trait is loyalty and wanting to help his friend I give him credit for that.
He is the A It took me a while to get around to reading this book, even though I rushed out and bought it immediately after finishing Sabriel The up side to that is in the meantime, I d bought Abhorsen as well That s important Sabriel was a good stand alone novel Lirael and Abhorsen are not In fact, I d recommend that before you read Lirael 1 you read Sabriel first and 2 you have a copy of Abhorsen ready to pick up as soon as you finish Lirael Lirael ends in the middle of something, and the two probably could have been combined into one very long novel.
Still, I recommend the whole series The characters may not be quite as awesome as Sabriel, but they re still very well done and the story is wonderful I ll definitely seek outof Garth Nix s 4.
5 Stars Way better than the first one While the Abhorsen series continues to thrive on its magic and worldbuilding, the characterisation in Lirael is unfortunately not up to par with its predecessor, Sabriel It does appear that Sabriel is written almost like a stand alone, as this sequel takes place almost one and a half decade after the events in the first book with two new main characters Lirael, a daughter of the Clayr and Prince Sameth, the son of Sabriel and Touchstone Both characters demonstrate the typical angst and insecurity of teenagers one who bemoans the absence of a power that is the birthright of her race and the other who decries the responsibility thrust upon him because of his birthright and powers If I have to choose, I will say Lirael is definitely theaggravating one While the other Clayrs of ages younger than Lirael started gaining the power of Seeing, she remai
okay Not as good a book as Sabriel, I went with 3 stars on this one It was close as the story is a pretty good one and we are still following the plot line thrown out in Sabriel, just not quite as well in my opinion of course.
We pick up about 14 years after end of that volume and we sort of get an introduction like, 14 years have passed there have been many battles as the King Touchstone who married Sabriel the Abhorsen overthrows evil, saves the Kingdom and aids the people At the same time the Abhorsen has faced many terrible dangers, binding the dead and destroying awful necromancers Really That might have made a good book Why didn t you tell us that story No we get to start over with another uncertain evenuncertain young woman She constantly bemoans her situation, considers killing herself but decides that throwing herself off a glacier When the Dead do walk, seek water s run, for this the Dead will always shun Swift river s best or broadest lake to ward the Dead and haven make If water fails thee, fire s thy friend if neither guards, it will be thy end Well this was freaking awesome As a sequel where the main character from Book 1 isn t the main focus I was a bit worried but there was no need because Lirael continued the story of the Old Kingdom and the dead fantasticallyThe blue hats shaded silver sightless eye sockets, the blue scarves held together rotting heads Lirael is part of the Clayr those who can see into the future But Lirael has never received the Sight As she gets older and the Sight still doesn t appear, her self worth becomes non existent and she retreats into herselflunging forward and nipping her quite sharply on the leg what did you do t
