Mister Monday by Garth Nix

Mister Monday (The Keys to the Kingdom, #1) Mister Monday by Garth Nix

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So I read this series last year, but there were 3 problems with my reading: (1) I read it too fast. It was like a move that you watched and enjoyed, but you were so tired that you later couldn't tell your friends what it was about. (2) I read it alone. I really enjoy reading books with my family, and this one is a prime candidate. (3) The final book of the series wasn't out yet. I hate reading unfinished series.

So my family started listening to the audiobooks, and I was right there. As you will see, I revisited the entire series, and it was better the 2nd time.

One helpful tidbit before you jump into this book: To me, all Garth Nix books are a bit... abstract. Keep reading, pay attention and you will be rewarded, although it might take half of the first book to really "get it." And in the end, that is one of the reasons I love them.
