If you could sum up Goblin Secrets in three words, what would they be?
Ripping good yarn!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Essa (spelling) is a delightful character, present, serious yet light-hearted.
Have you listened to any of William Alexander’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Although I have not listened to him read his other stories I must say that he falls into the Neil Gaiman category as a rare novelist who not only writes well but also reads, and acts, well.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Like the Harry Potter books, Goblin Secrets is great storytelling for grown-ups even if it is listed as "youth."
Any additional comments?
In addition to filling his story with great characters and settings, William Alexander also offers up splendid turns of phrase, bringing to "youth" fiction a height of art and depth of wisdom. In Goblin Secrets he explores the power of acting, words, storytelling and thought to literally change the world....a great magic in his fictional city as well as in the book itself. It is also a ripping good yarn.
Middle school readers and their parents will enjoy this story of an orphan boy who finds his way to a theater troupe of goblins in the fantastical city of Zimbabwe. A fun romp and great read by the author.
