Comments about Strange the Dreamer:
Since the end of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series I've been waiting for this book to be published, and it didn't disappoint. Laini Taylor's unique writing style and world building weave a mesmerising tale. Strange the Dreamer is like going on holidays and spending a month... at least a month... exploring some intriguing old city- all of its twisting lanes, interesting dusty old shops and small cafes (with maybe a couple of grandfathers in their favourite corner playing chess and arguing about football), rather than a package tour where you spend a couple of days, see the highlights and move on quick. It is not a slow read, but the complex layering made me want to slow down and appreciate the story, the characters and the richness in the language. My advice? Grab a mug of something warm, tell everyone to call you tomorrow (or the next day) and settle down for a journey of the mind.
