Tunnel of bones β˜…β˜…β˜…

β€œIt’s hard to believe in ghosts, until you see one, and then it’s hard not to.”

🌟 I thought that this is a duology and apparently it is not! I am not the target audience and so I will try not to be so critical but I know that MG does not mean it have to be bad or simple.

🌟 The writing is very very easy and straight forward, I respect Schwab’s ability to change the writing voice according to the intended age group which I have noticed many authors do badly specially after sticking for years in writing one specific genre! But this was really appropriate for younger readers and yes, if I had kids -I decided that they will be readers (JK whatever they want)- then this is the kind of books I would feel appropriate to read. It can be read in an afternoon, I actually literally did that, I started it in an afternoon and finished it before sleeping!

🌟 The characters were as good as in book 1, there was not a huge development to their characters but we got more backstory which was cool.

🌟 The plot was very simple in this one, I thought that it was too simple, the book felt like a filler rather than a continuation of book 2 and I think it can be made into a TV cartoon for children where each book is an episode with a separate story and they move the bigger story slowly!

β€œWhat you can’t see is always scarier than what you can. Your eyes play tricks on you, filling in the shadows, making shapes.”

🌟 Summary: I like how Schwab refreshed our memories about the world and how things work. I think the writing was good but the plot was too simple and like a filler! I was more intrigued by book 1 to be honest. I thought this is a duology and I wouldn’t have started it if I knew it was a trilogy or a series! Anyway still recommend for younger readers!
