I would sometimes forget she was a child, because of the sophisticated prose, and then be jarringly reminded by her childish reactions or self-absorbed dismissal of others.
Because Pia narrates, it got confusing. And my curiosity. After all, why write a mystery and then leave readers hanging on such simple questions?
It has atmosphere, but where it lost me was in the sense of the tourist. Helpful, yes, but it also came across as a bit condescending. I wanted to vicariously visit Germany, yes, but not have attention drawn to that fact. So like I said, I have mixed feelings about this book. Do I recommend it? Sure, especially if you like stories about child sleuths or nosy, would-be sleuths, as the case is and ghost stories.
But if nothing else, it brought to life a small, old town in the mountains of Germany, and I would very much like to see it.
The first part of the book subtly builds up tension, and the rest is more action-based, with a dose of gruesomeness that could compete with the likes of Stephen King. Shannon Reply: June 30th, at pm. Roxanne , It was a very good book, despite my reservations. Patti Smith , The cat would be Pluto, a big infamous tom in the town who has a hand in the drama.
I guess you could say that cats are a recurring motif in the story. Patti Smith Reply: June 30th, at pm.
