Cranky Author Reviews: The Jabberwocky by Theodore Singer

Spoilers


This book  was a pleasant surprise. At first I wasn't sure that I would like it much. 

I decided to review it anyway and I am glad that I did. This is the story of Astreus who's family has always had a special quest that generations of his ancestors have basically ignored.

At first the book was a bit slow, but I found myself fascinated by the way he talked of going on this wild quest.

I cheered when he set out to find the Jabberwocky...where he discovers a grand adventure. 

He finds immortal beings, talking-chess-playing-cats, evil wizards who've repressed people, a crazy follower and a letter...about the bridge of dreams.

That part was a bit creepy...and then to come to the end and find the jabberwocky only to be faced with a choice. Nope not telling what it was you'll have to read the book to find out.

So for me this was a EPE or 5 star
I loved it even though it was short. I liked the choice he made in the end too.
