One day while browsing in the bookstore, I picked up a copy of Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke and thought ohhh dragons!
A few years ago I fell head over heels in love with another Cornelia Funke book – Inkheart.
Inkheart is Fabulous with a capital Fab.
I must reread it soon and write a review, I also read the other two titles in the trilogy (why is everything a trilogy??!) but loved the first book more than the others.
Anyway, I picked up (and bought) Dragon Rider, and sat it on the pile of books on my bedside table – finally grabbed it for reading this week.
I try REALLY hard not to judge a book by it’s siblings – but I fear I judged Dragon Rider before I had even opened the cover – and the story so far has disappointed.
There’s a talking rat who is incredibly fussy and some scenes where I lose track of who is talking, what they are saying, and why any of it matters.
I hate giving up on a book though, so I will persevere – and when I am done I will write a proper review, and then go find my copy of Inkheart.
In other news, the children have spent all of my money at their school book fair. Good reason to be broke.
