Re: Bartimaeus Trilogy/Eldest
- I haven't tried the Barimaeus Trilogy yet, but will admit to an
addition to the Artemis Fowl series. Just something about them
captures my imagination.
- I kept falling asleep reading Eldest... : ) talk about stimulating.
I think my biggest frustration with Eldest is having the dwarves
talk in another language in sections of the book. Usually you would
have a race talk in a different language and then they would talk in
English later on...
There was also too much exposition; I don't want something described
in minute detail to me. The reader should be able to form a "mind
image" of the scene as well.

it depends on each person's tastes and preferences.
