    One thought on “Mister Monday

    1. Becky on said:

      I remember picking this book up because I liked Nix s Abhorsen trilogy so much, but this one is kind of a big letdown after the greatness that was Abhorsen It s just a run of the mill mid grade fantasy quest Arthurian Christian symbolism story And to make matters worse, for me anyway, is that it is just so whimsical and overly descriptive Two things I dislike on their own, but in combination STABSTABSTAB Also, I pretty much just hate stories where the magic has no logic or rules or structure and [...]

    2. Res on said:

      The one where dangerously asthmatic Arthur gains possession of a clock hand that embroils him in a conflict with supernatural agents one that takes the form of a strange journey in one realm, and a deadly plague in another.This was wildly original and yet also boring, which takes some doing Part of the trouble was the writing, which was often clunky and weighed down with unnecessary details Part of it was the plotting sometimes the rules and complications were just right, but other times they se [...]

      Okay, so I was all set to love this book Like REALLY LOVE IT I picked it up a few weeks ago but had to return it to the library, but because I was so SET TO LOVE IT etc I went out and bought my own copy to take to New Zealand I just didn t believe a bit of it I thought the dialogue was rubbish Arthur came across really nothingy to me I loved the actual concepts, but it felt badly executed I m bothered, because it could ve been so fantastic, and I heard an interview with Garth Nix the other day a [...]

      It s Garth Nix Was there ever a chance I wouldn t like it That said, I wouldn t have read this book let alone bought it if not for a glowing recommendation from the great and wonderful Cillian BB And so here s a big thank you to her, because while my mind wasn t quite blown, I am glad not to have missed out on what seems a fantastic series.My primary reservation about the Keys to the Kingdom series is its target age group and yes, I know that s silly, because how could the man who wrote Sabriel [...]

    5. Harold Ogle on said:

      The book starts off great, and then devolves into very dull and pedestrian YA fiction I bought it from our local used book shop on the strength of the first several pages, in which the world is established The beginning reads like a saga or a good role playing session there is an incredibly powerful artifact called the Will which must never be used but cannot be destroyed So the powers that be have split the Will into seven parts, and scattered those seven parts across all of creation We see tha [...]

    6. Jamie on said:

      I m not sure what to say about this book I liked it enough that I m planning on reading the second in the series, but I don t really know why It was a little bit tough to get through the first half maybe but I perservered and the story seemed to grow on me That being said, I don t feel the author did a great job of helping the reader to identify, or even care about, the main character s I guess the mysteriousness of The Will has me intrigued and I ve liked other books by this author enough to k [...]

    7. Audrey on said:

      This is Garth Nix s series for middle grade There s a book for each day of the week, so that s quite a commitment as far as a series goes I found it very creative, unpredictable, and fast moving with solid writing and interesting characters Re read to refresh my memory before continuing the series.

    8. Erika on said:

      This review and can be found on Living for the BooksThis book is very different from what I usually read and there s kind of a backstory to why I ended up reading it I was at the library with my boyfriend and I really wanted him to read The Raven Boys because it s my fave, so I agreed to read a book that he picked out for me Yeah, our reading tastes are not the same It s not that I didn t want to like this book, it just isn t for me Even when I was younger, I probably wouldn t have picked up th [...]

    9. Zele on said:

      Mister Monday, the first of seven novels from Garth Nix, is a fantastical fantasy adventure which utilizes imagination.Adventure fiction has always been a part of my childhood, from Gulliver s Travels to The Famous Five Amongst these beloved treasures is a series of books that should be read by every child, The Keys to the Kingdom Within this series of books, Mister Monday introduces the world of dog faced security guards, ceramic komodo dragons that come to life, and an adventure that every chi [...]

    12. Karen on said:

      All in all a good read With the idea that there are other realms that can and do have connection to this life isn t a new idea The way in which it is presented however is new As Arthur finds out that sometimes you have to do the hard things in life not only for yourself but for others, he discovers his own growth.

      right now i am on page 175 when Arther had met the Will and Suzy They almost got completly squashed when a elavator suddenly stopped They are also getting chased by man eating dogs wearing coats and bowler hats AWKWARD

      Arthur has such terrible asthma that his main ambition in life is just getting a next breath, so when a magical key is pressed into his hand and he becomes imbued with extraordinary powers, he s than a bit nonplussed There s little time to ponder, however, and Arthur quickly learns how to use the key while being chased through his school by dog faced men in suits All too soon Arthur is lost in a magical realm where no one and nothing is as it seems Through it all, Arthur never loses sight of hi [...]

      Mehr 3,5 Aber er hat einfach den Garth Nix Bonus Es fiel mir stellenweise schwer, die Handlung zu verstehen, weil einfach so viele W rter drin vorkamen, die mir absolut fremd waren leo ist ejn guter Freund Doch abgesehen davon war die Handlung spannend und es gibt einen fiesen letzten Satz, bei dem ich mir nur dachte eigentlich war das jetzt so klar und dar ber hab ich mich eh gewundert D

    16. Phrynne on said:

      This book started off really well but became less interesting as it went along It seemed to be leaning towards a children s book as opposed to being young adult and some of the dialogue in particular reflected this I must admit to skimming some of Arthur s very long journey to find the hour key and I found the conclusion when it eventually arrived to be less than satisfying An okay read but I will not be rushing out to get the sequel.

    17. Riley Redgate on said:

      one of my favorites ever, which derailed my moving process because i had to reread it what a brilliant, offbeat fantasy it truly feels magic

    18. Gina on said:

      Had to hang on to my hat to keep up with what was happening Very fanciful, but very fun Quite adventurous and unique Enjoyed the series.

    19. Jerry on said:

      An exciting fantasy adventure can t wait to read the rest of the series

    20. Eva on said:

      Excellent Not quite on the intricate levels of Sabriel etc but as it s for younger readers that s to be expected Looking forward to the rest of the series

    21. Kenya (ReviewsMayVary) on said:

      Ok Ok let s see The fact that I feel like I cannot remember, understand, or explain all of the details about what is going on is probably what makes this lose a star It s, at times, unnecessarily complicated for a basic sort of plot line loser kid with no friends is granted powers and has to save the world Or two, as the case may be But it s quick moving and mostly interesting It s short, so I will definately give it at least one book before I decide how I really feel about it I m most looking [...]

      First Look 4 5 This looked so cool I loved the concept, and the cover was cool and slightly creepy at the same time Just goes to show you that you can t judge a book by its cover Argh.Setting 1 5 It didn t make any sense I was so confused Yes, it was all explained in logical terms, but still It just felt so out there I couldn t believe a word of it Not for one minute I had trouble imagining it, because it just felt so incredibly random It felt just thrown together The characters would run into a [...]

      Review originally posted on The Oaken Bookcase on 27 7 2012.I listened to the audio version of Mister Monday from Bolinda Audio, borrowed from the library.Arthur Penhaligon is just an ordinary kid that is, until he suffers a supposedly fatal asthma attack and a strange man, Mister Monday, appears out of nothing and chooses him to be the Heir to the Keys to the Kingdom, for a little while at least But Arthur doesn t die like he s supposed to, and when the people around him start dropping from a m [...]

    24. Chrissie on said:

      I read this book in 2003 and kept up with the series up until Superior Saturday I ve always regretted not finishing it So I m now reading them again in hopes to make it through to Lord Sunday I remember this series being dark and metaphysical I also remember being really impressed with Garth Nix s ability to create such interesting and intricate universe s along with a hierarchy of time and space governed by a type of Feudalism Then he tosses in the seven deadly sins and the mysterious Will, a d [...]

    25. aPriL does feral sometimes on said:

      If Harry Potter had been raised as a fundamentalist Christian, and someone gave him LSD, a story like this might result, especially if he studied the myths surrounding King Arthur originally an English Christian myth.Even though I thought the fantasy elements were whimsically fun and interesting, most of the characters are disguised heroes and villains from the Bible Although apologists try to make the case the author was using tropes from Joseph Campbell s world mythology books, which I have re [...]

      Mister Monday is the first book in a 7 part series one for each day of the week The first five books are currently available I was dubious about reading this book because I thought it would be another Harry Potter rip off Its turned out to be a quite an exciting read Young teenage boy becomes a chosen one of sorts, and needs to avoid destruction while gaining power over part of The House , a place where all worlds meet and should be ruled over by laws put in place by The Architect, a mysterious [...]

      This was my first Garth Nix book and it won t be the last, especially since I want to see what happens on the other days of the week And I have to admit that I probably liked it so much because it was so well narrated I ve found that I enjoy most fantasy books when I listen to them rather that read the print copy I think that s partly because I m doing some mundane, boring task while I m listening to this story of strange and often bizarre things that take place in an other worldly situation Go [...]
