    " I tried to get into this book, loved the setting and the characters, however, the story line and character development left me feeling detached from them. I did finish the book, but felt a bit unsatisfied with the ending. "

    " Well, I don't know if this counts as reading it, but I did begin it! I got so frustrated with the overabundance of adjectives that I just couldn't take it any more. I stopped reading shortly into Chapter 2. Now I know why I got it for $1 on the Borders Clearance rack! "

    " This is the first book I have read by Avi. I liked it very much. Avi calls it a fable of medieval magic, which it is, and as such it is a morality tale. Sybil is an orphan who is grateful for her new position as maid for an ancient, surly man who has been seeking to extend his life, to never die. It is a miserable job, but at least she is fed and sheltered. Unbeknownst to Sybil the old alchemist has plans to steal her life to add to his. The book also features a talking crow, Odo, and two other children who participate in the puzzle of the book without words. Will they find the old man's gold? Discover how to make gold? Escape the fate of hanging planned for them by the town reeve? Achieve a better life? "
