Over the Mountain and Back Reviews
I absolutely LOVED this book!! I loved the fantasy, the adventure and Peter! There is so much to this character and story that I hope Marie Astor will write a book two.
Originally posted at my blog: ReadingToTheStarsAndBackI'll let the notes I took do the talking :)Enjoying it so far, but wish we could have had a bit of a warning before throwing us into another world so quickly. The characters are a little weak. Don't seem to have much of a peronality. We know about their lives, but what about their favourite things, likes, dislikes. What makes them? Peter has named his sliver board, Silverboard. Going for the literal side of things then? :) The speach is very formal. 'I will,' instead of, 'I'll.' 'Did not' instead of 'Didn't'. A 14 year old boy probably wouldn't use language like that. It doesn't flow so well. Peter has very casually excepted the giants. He isn't a kid anymore, he must realise that they come from another world, but he doesn't question it. Nor is he scared. I'd be wetting myself. The transformation from Broderick into Carnelion was rather clever, i thought. Devious. I think, overall, that this book was written to be read out loud. It sounds better spoken than read in your head, you know? The selection of mythical creatures was exciting! Mermaids, dragons, yeti's, witches and others too. I realise that Marie Astor has written contemporary romance novels , and that this is her first published sci/fi - fantasty book, she has done quite well to make such a change. Star :P
Peter Bailey is a boy of fourteen living in Boulder, Colorado. When Peter goes looking for a new snowboard, the store owner gifts him a magnificent, shimmering snowboard that had been returned by other customers who were unable to ride it.When Peter takes his new snowboard for a ride, he gets much more than he bargained for and finds himself transported to the hidden world of Transadonia. There, he learns that his arrival to the magical country was no accident: Carnelion, an evil mastermind, is planning to usurp power over Transadonians, and Peter's help is needed to defeat him. Wondering why he has been chosen for the task and whether he has to the mettle to accomplish it, Peter embarks on his quest. Along the way, he meets a girl named Lara who joins him on his journey. Peter and Lara will ride a snow dragon, be tricked by the Forest Witch, meet a settlement of talking Bears, travel into the world of the Sea King, and face many trials and adventures as they strive to free Transadonia from the evil mastermind.Written with picturesque imagery and lively dialogue, this fantasy adventure is a real treat to both kids and adults alike.
