That was quiet a challenge for me.
A huge compilation of almost all of my pet peeves and I thought I would be in deep trouble.
Nice surprise - it wasn`t that bad!
Niggles - The Kid`s language was way too adult - no nine year old boy talks like that and that has nothing to do with the IQ.
- I skipped a few pages when Bear`s voice as first person narrative bothered me too much - incredibly chatty and wordy inner musings,monologue and dialogue...phew!
But somehow Otter kissed it all better - my favorite character in this book.
Overall - a nice read with a very unique charme.
Note: Thanks to my GR friends - you know who you are - for coaxing and bribing me into reading this book.
I`m glad you did!
