Wow its been a long time since ive read a book with such vivid imagery i saw a review that compared the style to miyazaki and i complet I don t need a cover or even a full synopsisI m a simple irl I see Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner I need it edit there s a cover and I need this book even now Is it September yet DID SOMEONE JUST MENTION THE 100 YOOOO IM IN LMAO So I don t know why I m surprised by how much I liked this because I reuested it solely as a result of the author names without knowing or caring about what the plot would be but oh wow did I really really like this Also yes I went in to this totally unaware of the summary even after I was approved for the ARC no one is surprisedThis is nothing like either of the authors work before as solo writers or partners and I actually found everything about the story in شرح جامع مثنوى معنوى general to be so interesting and uniue There is a definite worlds divide feeling about THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SKY both in current day living and mythology as well as belief We spend time in one world than the other but knowing how this ended I m sure we llet a deeper look at the opposite in book two and I can t wait for that But the world of the Below was so rich so interesting such a fascinating blend of faith and magic whereas the world Above we know is the complete opposite Just like our protagonistsI know there s always a dialogue regarding YA feeling too YA and adults who read YA The New Song: For the Sunday School, Societies of Christian Endeavor, and Other Religious Exercises (Classic Reprint) getting some criticism for picking up those books and then being disappointed by them because of their target audience But my rebuttal is always that there are ways to write for an audience while still satisfying those outside of it Or just writing so well that it trancends ageroups That s what some authors can do well and others can t and Riding Hard generally that s where my criticisms come from Sure you can still write well but nonetheless have characters that read too young for you or find themselves in situations that adult readers can be frustrated by That s still valid I m sure I muilty of it But These authors I doubt I ll ever have a problem with them and I m so happy after all these years they are still writing YA Though hey if they dropped an adult title I d be first in lineBut that tangent has nothing to do with this story or why you should read it It doesn t Arabian Challenge go into detail about the complexities of the world the characters how things connect or how they circumvent a path you think you re on and surprise you with something else This story does all that and all whilst immersing you into a world.
