The Thickety: A Path Begins

The Thickety: A Path Begins - J. A. White My thoughts on this book are all over the place. I thought it had an interesting premise and at the beginning was very intriqued by the idea of the Thickety itself. As I read, I was often confused as I snatched at bits of information about the setting - I didn't feel like it was being artfully slowly revealed to create a bigger understanding, just randomly doled out. The religion of the island also had me wondering if I was to be drawing parallels to other historical religious groups, if so, I didn't do a very good job. The writing was fine, but in the end, I only really cared about the little brother and the boy friend. When the final action-filled scene set up the sequel, I did not rush to order it. Some of my kids might enjoy it. Read June, 2014
