Rivers of London Vol 5: Cry Fox
Rivers of London Volume 5: Cry Fox - Ben Aaronovitch

Series: Rivers of London Graphic Novels #5

 

A quick read featuring Reynard up to his old tricks where he manages to involve Abigail in a kidnapping. Someone should tell that girl not to talk to foxes. Literally. But at least Dan's family is safe.

 

I read this for the "Darkest London" square for 2018 Halloween Bingo. I'm pretty sure it works. A lot of it takes place in London. And the estate must be near London.

 

Um, can I count this for Darkest London?

Hurricane Florence has hit my state. Very, very wet with all the rain with more to come. There's flooding in surrounding areas, but we are ok here at the Voracious Homestead outside of Greensboro.

Wonder
Wonder - R.J. Palacio

Another from NPR's Ultimate Backseat Bookshelf.

 

This definitely felt like a message book. The author wanted to make the point that bullying is bad so she wrote this book with the point that bullying is bad.

 

I don't think it was as terrible as some other reviewers (e.g. the fact that Auggie wins an award for being born the way he is is lampshaded in the book which makes the scene slightly more palatable than if it hadn't been). But it's not great.

 

I thought the writing was inconsistent. Or maybe it was too consistent? Every character sounds the same, and every character sounds older than they're supposed to be. If Auggie and Via had been aged up, their voices would have made more sense (with the exception of all the use of Mommy/Daddy... what was up with that?).

 

I'm not mad I read it, but if I weren't aiming to check it off my list I wouldn't have finished it.
