    7. I was fascinated by THE BLACK CANARY Never having been there, I struggled with the long descriptions of London, both present day and four hundred years ago In general I found Jane Louise Curry s descriptions hard to follow and envision But I was drawn in by the character, 12 year old James, the biracial son of two musically talented parents, who has gone through life agreeably trying to be what others want him to be, but who doesn t want to be in London for the summer And I was drawn in by the s [...]


    8. I was disappointed in this book I like that it deals with a bi racial kid, since there s relatively little children s fantasy that is multicultural But I found the beginning dull and it was difficult to picture what Curry was describing in terms of getting into the past through some shimmering window in the cellar The middle of the book a hundred pages in was interesting But the ending was anti climactic Why didn t Curry let James sing for the Queen That would have been the climax of the book f [...]


    9. This book was my historical fiction book for social studies I didn t enjoy it very much, but I thought it was an interesting and unique topic The book had a combination of modern and medieval times, connected with a portal I think the author was very creative in the way that she twisted medieval lives into the life of a 21st century boy There were a few things that I didn t enjoy though I think the book switched around in topics frequently and was confusing It was difficult to follow, especially [...]


    10. What a weird book The plot was gripping in the beginning, but it became and vauge The character motivations were completely muddled and there was some random thing on the end about sedition that made me go wtf I still have no idea what the themes or point was While James was an interesting main character, his actions were not believable and while I rushed through to the end just to see what happens, I wouldn t recommend this book at all However it is not the worst book I ve ever read.


    11. An intriguing premise, but poorly executed There was way too much description of the setting and not nearly enough plot The story was so slow and boring that I almost quit reading 1 3 of the way through Normally I love historical fiction set in the Elizabethan era, but nothing interesting happened to the main character beyond the initial time travel The fact that James was biracial added an interesting dimension, but I didn t think this was explored enough Not the worst book I ve read, but quite [...]


    12. I love the writing style of this writer, she paints pictures that are almost painfully real There s lots of adventure, But story fell a bit short, the climax didn t really do it, and I was left wondering where the climax had been But I really enjoyed it overall.


    13. Time to read What s that Ohhhhh yyeeeaahhh I remember now Haven t had time to read in FOREVER It felt soooo good to have my nose in a book even though it wasn t that great Although the end perfectly summaraizes my fasination for anything and everything old.



    14. Tried to read this, but i could never get past the middle It put me to sleep Don t bother reading this book, it s a waste of time.


    15. The first trip back in time almost made me close the book and quit but I continued on Glad I did I enjoyed it.



    16. This time travel book fell into my head I didn t want the book to end Definitely a book that s savored rather that quickly read.
