    Aha, another addict.
    Yes, I to re-read the series before reading the current installment. It is an alternate world and it helps to re-immerse yourself into that world before you extend it.
    Like the best of “juvenile” fiction, there are layers that can be appreciated by various audiences. The surface layer is a good story, but beneath that are puns for comic relief, and then the core morality tale.

    Actually, I’m sort of glad that it’s shorter than the last one–she was in danger of making the whole series a little unwieldy if she had kept that growth trend up.
    Good books, pretty well written, very imaginative, and yet I still prefer CS Lewis with his Narnia and Perelandra books.
    But that’s just me.

    I’ve always thought the Narnia books were too short! I don’t like a good thing to end and I’ve always enjoyed some of the particularly long winded novelists: Dickens, Grass, Dostoyevsky, Mann, Tolstoy, Wolfe,Stephensen, etc…..to name a few.

    I love the brevity. Sketch a picture and let my mind make a painting from the words. That isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a long book if it’s a worthwhile read, just that it’s harder for me to fiind authors that are compelling who write long.
