The Singular and Extraordinary Tale of Mirror and Goliath Comment

  1. This was definitely a strange book but I enjoyed it I would call it a weird mix of Sherlock Holmes, Neil Gaiman and a dash of Stephen King and a sprinkle of George RR Martin It was so dark and yet whimsical Very lyrically written The story itself unfolded in a very unpredictable way which I rather enjoyed as it kept you on your toes Overall, I m glad it read it and look forward to reading its Sequel.


  2. A very dark and unique fairy tale for adults told in an interesting mosaic kind of narrative Highly imaginative and filled with sense of wonder.I think this is one of that stories where the journey itself is the aim of the telling We follow a bunch of characters, everyone of them talking in first person The very short chapters aren t presented in chronological order, so the reader needs to stay on top of the dates to put together the whole colorful picture of this tale.Some of the characters and [...]

  5. Review copyA world of spiritualists, a murderer who kills children and transfers their souls into clockwork pieces of art, a shape shifting guardian, a possible look at the root of the Jack the Ripper legend, and I still had a difficult time embracing The Singular Extraordinary Tale of Mirror and Goliath.Maybe it was the way the story was told piecemeal in a series of vignettes through a wide variety of first person narratives rather than with a single voice At times it seemed disconnected At fi [...]


  6. Final 3.85Es un cuento de fantas a oscura para adultos, si, en efecto se nota, sin embargo, est bien mezclada con una novela policiaca de poca Lo s , suena muy extra o En lo personal, es la ventaja y la desventaja de este libro, principalmente porque te llevar s una sorpresa, la narrativa me pareci buena, pero no excepcional para hablar de cuentos, para eso se necesita mucho encanto y precisi n, pero lo hizo muy bien Lo mejor del libro, los personajes principales, Mirror y el peculiar Goliath si [...]



  7. 4.5 5OH MY GOSH I would describe this as a mix of The Book Thief and Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Children with a little bit of American Horror Story.The story was unique and exciting, it was super fast paste and I flew through it definitely one of the best and most addicting books I ve read this year


  8. This books is a bit of a disaster It starts off well enough, and it kept me turning the pages for quite a while, but the issues with this book far outweigh any positives Here s an enumeration of just some of the issues Spelling errors normally a few mistakes are entirely forgivable no author or editor is perfect but the number of typos in this book was simply annoying Unnecessary font stylization Bee often bolds letters or changes the font size mid sentence, but I found that it never had the atm [...]


  9. I didn t want to rate this book so low I love the cover and the story is really extraordinary and good but there are so many things that I didn t like that I have no other option but to give it1 star.Up to one point the story is very good and I enjoyed it but then, after the 100th page of my copy everything started to go down.The book begins with Mirror s POV and then suddenly there is everybody s POV but Mirror s and it seems as if this is not a book about her and her protector but about everyb [...]



  10. WTF did I just read Definitely not for the faint of heart, quite whimsical actually, and the gore, oh, the gore To be honest, I m slightly saddened that it wasn t published as an audio book, because its fragmented structure fell even apart during my tired, sleepy eyed reading of the book late at night It gave me some rather intriguing dreams though 3,5 stars.


  11. I got an ARC of this book from the publisher through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review Hmmm A hard one to rate I liked it, but not as much as I thought I would Maybe 3.5 stars between I liked it and I really liked it The setting, characters and writing had a twisted fairy tale like quality, rather close to what I d expect from authors I love like Neil Gaiman Victorian England, for starters, with a dash of the Egyptian craze An Egyptian princess whose soul may have travelled to another [...]



  12. Mirror was trapped in a clock by her grandfather and came out as something than human She wanders England with her shape shifting guardian, Goliath When they encounter the evil Mr Fingers and his son Mr Loveheart, they must tread carefully, because Mr Fingers is after Mirror s soul.This book is hard to summarize, because of the threadbare plot and vague, dreamlike nightmarelike prose Had I not been told about this book by a friend and stumbled across it on my own in the bookstore, I d be lured [...]


  13. I rounded up from what should have been 2 and a half stars if would have let me.There were parts of this book that was amaze ball reading experiences Perfectly crafted sentences that were like tiny drops of the bestest candy you have ever had melt in your mouth.Then there were parts that were disjointed, awkward, and felt like a thorn pricking your side when you are hiking in the hills So much beauty to look at and then all of a suddenOUCH It s a shame I don t feel like its the author s fault I [...]



  14. 3.5 Stars Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes Read near the end of 2016, but it is certainly a contender for the weirdest book of the year for me It is difficult to place it somewhere, but if I had to, it would be some kind of adult fairy tale I really liked the cover It starts out rather like a horror tale Mirror grandfather, being mad, tried to kill her to conserve her soul in a clock It turns out that a lot of children are disappearing by the hands of a certain cult But since the sto [...]

  16. I really enjoy books that refuse to be pigeonholed Here s one with fantasy, horror, science fiction, and steampunk elements A lot of people who have read this are baffled as how to explain it Think ofAlice in Wonderlandovertones with a high body count and creepy, kooky characters and you ll get the general idea One of the very few books I ve read where I thought there were too many points of view and the story layout gets a shade convoluted than it has to but still a very strong debut effort It [...]


  17. Beautiful and dark, haunting and mesmerizing The prose is beautiful, the atmosphere creepy and delicious The colourful cast of characters, equally delightful The plot is strange, richly layered and switching between narrators all in first person Definitely has that Victorian charm, found in such books as The Night Circus.A wonderful read, even if quite an unusual one SIngular and extraordinary indeed.


  18. My first reaction when I finished this what the fuuuuuuuuck was this.For real, if there s one thing that this book was, then it s all over the place The title would make you think that the story is about two characters called Mirror and Goliath Wrong It s about nobody at all and at the same time about everybody ever The book starts off with some chapters about Mirror and Goliath I rather disliked these chapters, because it was a boring story trying too hard to be creepy The simplicity of the wri [...]


  19. The book is really similar to Alice in Wonderland It s weird, unnatural and at first sight it seems as a children s book Unfortunately Check the whole review in my blog booksinartbubbles.tumblr




  20. This book is fascinating the way it tells the story, slowly and through the perspectives of mostly all the characters involved, jumping around in time and space.The characters themselves are all interesting and especially Mirror and Goliath are lovely to read about.John Loveheart is a weird and crazy character that you just like and dislike at the same time while you are wondering how he gets away with the stuff he does.There is quite some violence in the novel, but it just seems so casual it is [...]



  21. This book was freaking insane I don t know what i feel about it I m somewhere between the one star and the five stars, but don t wanna give it three stars, because the book doesn t deserve that much Strange loves, pedophilism, a lot of Death, weird retrospections and absolutely mad personages That was this book I like the book, but at the same time i absolutely despise it Pfff, i don t know, really
