    Paperback Ó Jamrach's Menagerie eBook Ì jamrach's book, menagerie free, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBII received my copy from Bookhugger's Real Readers programme and the first thing to note is that the cover is absolutely stunning The second thing is that the opening paragraph is one of the most enticing I have ever read Unfortunately after such a promising first impression it falls a little flatIt's definitely an adventure novel but this creates some odd strengths and weaknesses I would disagree with the negative reviews which found it difficult to read It's written in uite a compelling fashion and I never felt the

    Paperback Ó Jamrach's Menagerie eBook Ì jamrach's book, menagerie free, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBII found this book at the library sale shelves The cover attracted my attention first and after reading the first paragraph I was hooked I was born twice First in a wooden room that jutted out over the black water of the Thames and then again eight years later in the Highway when the tiger took me in his mouth and everything truly beganHow could I resist finding out what happened nextA word of advice though I did not read the blurb on the book jacket when I bought the book I did not read the GR blurb either which I have just discovered uotes the cover blurb exactly The trouble is that blurb is pretty much a condensed version of the book Because I dove in without knowing any of the details given in the blurb I was surprised when dramatic events happened an

    Paperback Ó Jamrach's Menagerie eBook Ì jamrach's book, menagerie free, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBII was torn between two and three stars for this Perhaps it is like 25 This book was a chore for me to read I felt disappointed and that it ought to have been so much better Maybe the problem was one of marketing it is called Jamrach's Menagerie and yet the vast bulk of it is about a voyage to find a presumably komodo dragonFor a book with such Dickensian ambition the characters were remarkably lifeless I felt that I should have identified with them and been drawn in Yet I wasn't Parts of the plot were horrible the 65 days adrift after the storm for example They were also unoriginalI gather the writing has been praised It is true that parts of it were very b
