    Nazis and Pirates and Time Travel oh my This was one crazy book, but crazy in all the best of ways It was really a rather fun ride My younger self would have probably been delighted with it as it was, I still enjoyed it hence the four stars It starts out simply enough, about a sea loving lighthouse keeper s son on an English island in 1939 but then one thing adds to another, and soon there s a mysterious chest, pirates, an eviction notice, and a dog held for ransom As if that isn t enou Nazis and Pirates and Time Travel oh my This was one crazy book, but crazy in all the best of ways It was really a rather fun ride My younger self would have probably been delighted with it as it was, I still enjoyed it hence the four stars It starts out simply enough, about a sea loving lighthouse keeper s son on an English island in 1939 b...

    This book is a good example of what NOT to do when writing a historical fantasy for young readers It s been quite a while since I ve read something that contained so much amateuristic and unnecessary blither and blather that perhaps that only way to describe why this book should NOT be lauded as a noteworthy piece of juvenile historical fantasy is in a list 1 It feels like a mediocre adult thriller writer s attempt to write for children, i.e it fails Excessive description, lack of character This book is a good example of what NOT to do when writing a historical fantasy for young readers It s been quite a while since I ve read something that contained so much amateuristic and unnecessary blither and blather that perhaps that only way to describe why this book should NOT be lauded as a noteworthy piece of juvenile historical fantasy is in a list 1 It feels like a mediocre adult thriller writer s attempt to write for children, i.e it fails Excessive description, lack of character development, confusing and unappealing plot.2 The protagonist, Nick, undergoes no growth throughout the novel.3 Dialogue is overly dramatic and artificial Great for a puppet show performed for a crowd of pre schoolers As a middle grade novel Not so much.4 The plot is uneven, with things ...
