Pas aussi bon que le premier (Johannes Cabal le Nécromancien) mais une lecture vraiment amusante et engageante!
À peu près tous les favoris, n'est-ce pas?
Another quick installment of The Real Duchesses of London series by Ms. Kent. While I liked learning more about Annabelle, the token American heiress, I didn't feel as connected to her or Thomas as I did to the previous duchessess featured. I also wanted to know more about how and why Mr. Swatts became involved in the publication of the cartoons. Perhaps these are questions that will be answered as we continue the series. I am most interested to learn more about Elizabeth and am pleased hers will be the next novella (September 2011).
Let's face it--Clive Barker knows monsters like no one else! I don't think there is a single book Barker has written that I haven't loved (or oh-so-dreaded-in-a-wonderful-way!--oh wait, there was that Hollywood one--definitly not the best). I added Abarat because it encompasses his paintings as well an epically great story, and I've read all three. I heard through the grapevine he will be publishing more in the series soon, and a movie is in the works!
