Dragon’s Green Worldquake Sequence (Scarlett Thomas)
Leanna (15) las ‘Dragon’s Green WORLDQUAKE SEQUENCE van Scarlett Thomas:
Effie Truelove is an eleven-year-old kid who believes in magic. Due to a huge world quake WiFi and mobile phones don’t exist anymore. At the same time this weird event occurred, her mom disappeared. Her grandfather, Griffin Truelove, also believes in magic, although Effie’s father claims it’s all fake. Unfortunately Griffin wasn’t willing to talk about it, until now. He started teaching Effie about magical thinking and shows her his library. But shortly after that, Griffin dies because of a mysterious incident and leaves Effie with a couple of magical objects, his library and some unclear instructions. Sadly, her father sells all her books to a shady person called Leonard Levar. Together with Maximilian, Wolf, Lexy and Raven, Effie tries to get her books back and starts a dangerous adventure.
THIS BOOK IS ONE OF THE BEST I’VE EVER READ. Reading this book gave me a comfortable, dreamy feeling and every time I see the book I feel that again. It’s one of the few books I would read for a second time. When I saw the book for the first time I immediately fell in love with the cover, which is made in an unique drawing style. According to the reviews it was the perfect book for Harry Potter fans, which I fully agree with. It’s full of magic and adventure. When you start reading you immediately get caught up in the story because of the detailed descriptions.
“…She was tall and thin and her extraordinarily long fingers were like sharp twigs on a poisonous tree. She wore black polo necks that made her head look like a planet being slowly ejected from a hostile universe, and heavy tweeds suits in strange, otherworldly pinks and reds that made her face look as pale ass a cold moon…”
Scarlett Thomas has created a beautiful world filled with lovely characters and I can’t wait to read the rest of the Worldquake sequence. I’m in love with this book and I think everyone should read it. It’s perfect.
