Tis the season… ...and this book sorta grinched my jolly with some flaws , faults and literary faux pas that marred what could have been a terrific tale. However, before I hand the keyboard over to Captain Critical for the inevitable feeling-bruising remarks to come, let me start off chummy and Kr Leggi tutto
The premise sounds great, but that's all. Don't get cheated. This book is poorly written, the characters and their feelings are flat and unbelievable and their decisions often unreasonable. It lacked suspense, I was just bored and didn't care about the characters. Yeah, true, it had its bright momen Leggi tutto
EPIC!!!! Can't wait to read the rest of the series! This book tells the story of Cale, a 14-year-old boy who grows up in a joyless place called the Sanctuary. The Redeemers, who run the monastery grounds, are cruel religious fanatics who are constantly exercising violence in order to disciple the chi Leggi tutto
The Left Hand of God starts out very dreary and grim. It was hard going reading such a dark story, but I found Cale's character compelling enough to keep reading. Reading books in which most of the religious people are the bad guys is difficult for me. Especially when the religion is either Christia Leggi tutto

The religion of the redeemers is that they believe in god and the hanged redeemer who was sent to earth by god to correct the sins of man and help them go towards the one true faith b (hide spoiler)] Leggi tutto
“Listen. The Sanctuary of the Redeemers on Shotover Scarp is named after a damned lie for there is no redemption that goes on there and less sanctuary.” The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is because I'm saving it for the rest of the series. Gotta admit that this came as a surprise. I was mos Leggi tutto
Oh dear, Mr Hoffman. Where do I even begin. Yes, I admit it. Seduced by the sexy cover, awesome title and exciting plot snippets, I fell for this novel's hype hook line and sinker. And wasn't I a sucker. The novel's main strength is that the narrator is witty and engaging, of the kind prone to divert Leggi tutto
4.5 Odi et amo. Al netto della critica questo libro può essere definito con questo verso Catulliano. Io faccio parte della cerchia degli "amo". Hoffman scrive bene, scrive male? Il libro è un fantasy, uno storico o un distopico? Devo ancora capirlo. Sicuramente è uno dei libri più irriverenti, ironic Leggi tutto
3.5 stars Enjoyed this book, would have been a better rating, but the whole thing felt very impersonal and detached.
In the hellish Sanctuary of the Redeemer, young boys are trained from the age of five to be unthinking soldiers. Cale, the most promising, is singled out for punishment for the most trivial offenses. One day, Cale stops a Redeemer from dissecting a girl and he and his two friends Vague Henri and Kle Leggi tutto
