The Ingo Chronicles - Stormswept product reviews

Morveren lives with her parents and twin sister Jenna on an island off the coast of Cornwall, circled by sea except at low tide. One day, Morveren finds a beguiling teenage boy in a rock pool after a storm. Going to his rescue, she is shocked to find that he is not human, but a Mer boy. Morveren turns to Jenna, but Jenna, always the sensible one, refuses to face the truth. Yet when the worlds of Air and Mer meet, the consequences cannot be ignored...

An atmospheric and beautifully written novel from the author of INGO.

If someone asked me what I thought of this book, I would be able to describe everything in 7 little letters: A, W, E, S, O, M, E! The cover was awesome, you can see the whole "Water theme, and the patterns were great. My only objection: the specks of gold on the cover, it makes it look a bit messy. The story started off good, it brought me straight into the action, and as I went through the book, my excitement grew, and grew, and grew some more.

Soon, I took this book with me whenever I could, and a couple of times at breakfast I nibbled at the last remains of my apple so that I could read more! I had two favourite characters in the book: Morveren and the Mer boy, whose name I'm not going to tell you so that you can find out when you read the book, but the reason I love these two characters is because Morveren is very adventurous and will do anything to help her Mer friend, and I like the Mer boy because he is quite fascinating, and I envy him for his ability to stay in the water for days and never need to come up to surface.

I will most definitely be reading this book again, for it was very enjoyable, and when I look at the book I get a hint of the excitement I experienced while I read, and when I was reading the book I was off in another world, and I just wanted to shut myself in my room and read it all day, but sadly my schoolwork got in the way, so I had to eventually put the book down and do my other stuff.

The price is great, $23.00 is suitable since the book is rather thick, 300 pages if you want to go into the details, so thumbs up for that aspect. The story seemed almost real, in fact I ever saw a Mer person, I would label this book under fact, not fiction. While reading, I did lose track of time quite largely, time crept long quickly, and that's why I had to force myself to stop read at some points, because if I thought that I had been reading for one hour, I might look at the clock and see that half a day had gone!

The book would be good for people 11+, I don't think that anyone younger would have trouble understanding some parts, or they might get put off by seeing the thickness of the book. All together, this is a freakin' awesome book that I will have to read when I get a break from the review books! Enjoy!

Product reviews for listing 1186: Spike & Co
Written by Graham McCann

Product image for Spike & CoThis is the story of how a golden age of British comedy was launched in the most unlikely setting - above a greengrocer's in West London.

On any weekday morning, if you clambered over the crates of fruit and veg, climbed the five flights up the rickety staircase and entered Associated London Scripts, you would find Spike Milligan, Eric Sykes, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, shaping the latest shows, swapping the odd story and searching ... more...
