Synopsis

The Sanctuary of the Redeemers is a place where children endure brutal cruelty and violence in the name of the One True Faith. Lost in the Sanctuary’s huge maze of corridors is a boy. He is strange witty and charming, and violent. But when he opens the wrong door at the wrong time he witnesses an act so horrible he must flee, or die..

My Opinion

Where to begin? Oh, right.

I only gave it three stars ’cause in the end it begins to get a bit interesting.

So, this was one of the weirdest, slightly boring books I’ve ever read. Not that I haven’t enjoyed it, which I did, but it only became interesting in the last chapter. Actually, you don’t even understand much what’s going one during the entire book and then, in the end, when Redeemer Bosco tells the main character, Thomas Cale, what he truly is, you kind of feel like you want more – and I haven’t felt that before that particular scene.

I told a friend of mine that this was the sort of book I wouldn’t be desperate for the second one, but I admit wanting to know what the hell is going to happen.

So, after reading the mountains of books I have to read, and as soon as I find The Last Four Things in my book store, I might buy it.

  1. O segundo volume da saga já está à venda à meses! Pelo menos, desde Setembro, se não estou em erro. Também estou mortinha para ler o que se segue, mas para já tenho outros livros em lista de espera =PNão achei o livro nada aborrecido, mesmo nas partes mais estranhas e desprovidas de informação útil. Eu entendi a mecânica do liro logo no seu início, e a ideia, se bem me parece, é que o leitor não saiba la muito bem "onde se anda a meter" quando o lê.Bjs*

  2. Eu sei… quero compra-lo em inglês assim que conseguir encontrar uma edição semelhante à minha :PNão sei se era porque não estava muito virada para a história mas houve algo que não me encontrou quando li o livro. Pode ser que, na segunda lida mude de opinião (isso acontece-me muitas vezes) 😀

  3. Eu pensei comprar o primeiro livro no ano passado mas desisti da ideia…. agora já são dois….. mas se os ler vai ser daqui a muito tempo, porque já tenho uma lista de livros prioritários…. bj. Inês.
