Abarat Review

477 pages
A journey beyond imagination is about to unfold. . . .

It begins in the most boring place in the world: Chickentown, U.S.A. There lives Candy Quackenbush, her heart bursting for some clue as to what her future might hold.
When the answer comes, it's not one she expects.
Welcome to the Abarat.

Review:
Well this book was definitely more entertaining than I thought it would be. Candy Quackenbush is a character who wants to get out of her small town and not end up like everyone else there. She has a mind for adventure and is always searching for something different and exciting. Eventually she ends up having a wild chase with a monstrous man and helping another with eight heads. Then she ends up in Abarat. Abarat is a place full of adventure and you never know quite what to expect. It is a completely different world from the one that Candy grew up in. I really liked Candy as a character because of her fearlessness and readiness to explore a new world. The world of Abarat was wonderfully created and brings a lot more to the imagination. I really think this was a great fantasy novel and I can't wait to see where Candy's adventures take her next. I definitely recommend this to those who like an amusing and fun fantasy novel.
